Prettie Wednesday Challenge

First of all, I have to say thank you to Jules for such a great challenge:-) I had so much fun with this one! The challenge was to make a card using a shape besides a rectangle, square, circle, etc. My first idea was to do a leaf and use Falling For You Sophia. Than I found this tutorial on how to make a bird house ornament. It was so cute, and I'm so bummed because I don't remember where I saw it! If any of you think you know what I'm talking about can you leave me the link? But it gave me the idea to do a birdhouse card and use the little bird from Rainy Day Friends. I couldn't decide which idea I liked better, so I decided to do them both!





The bird house I"ll send to my aunt for her birthday card. I really love how they both turned out, especially the bird house, I think it may be the cutest card I've ever made:-) Next Wednesday Charmaine has asked us to do an ATC, and Artist's Trading Card. Something else I've never done, so should be fun. Hope you all had a great hump day, only two days left until the weekend!
