Tall birdhouse

Hi all, this card started out and was meant to be more of a collage, but then I totally changed it and made it much more straightforward:

tall birdhouse

And you know what is so neat about this tall birdhouse stamp? It is a perfect fit for stamping onto a CB'd Large Labels nestie!

I stamped, stacked and layered the main image....the background was stamped with the Flourish Background stamp onto patterned paper and distressed with chalk ink.

Thanks for peeking!


Supplies:
Hero Arts:
CG119 - Flourish Background.
AF181 - Poppy chalk ink.
K5366 - Tall Birdhouse.
CL047 - Clear Design Messages.

Other:
American Crafts patterned paper - Purple Damask.
K & Company patterned paper - Cut N Paste.
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Large Labels.
Cuttlebug.
Versafine Onyx Black.
