A Mini Bird House

Well, it still seems to be spring here, sure hope it stays that way! Today I have another mini bird house to show. I have a template to cut it out, so it doesn't take long to make, and they make nice little presents at this time of year. This time I used brown cardstock for the house, a scrap of cardboard polished with inka gold for the roof and perch, and some red scraps for the heart and opening. The bird has been stamped from a TH die, again using some pretty scraps,and has been given a red satin heart. I decorated the house with satin roses, too, this is evidently the luxury version of a bird house....

Thanks for looking and have a nice day!
