this week our amazingly artistic and wonderfully sweet  carole  is our hostess and she chose the birdhouse from  stretch your imagination. i do own the cart but got a lil confused in our DT post , thought we needed a different cart i dont own... anyways i made this in advance and knew the ladies wouldnt mind if i didnt start over :) i used cindyloo cartridge for the birdhouse plus the swirl and flowers.  and for the birds ( i snipped off the boy birdies hat) and heart corners  i used sweethearts cartridge.i added colorbox fluid chalk,  and a heart pearl  my beautiful paper is memorybox. for  the blog hop info  as i promised :)

Love everything about your card. I used those cute birds on a new home card I made last year. Need another one now. I realy love the simplicity of yours and the papers are perfect.

Your card is adorable! My favorite paper depends on the project, but I do love DCWV, I think that is your favorite too:)

Beautiful card, Shelly....very nice job with the challenge.

Jeri said...

Shelly--I almost used the same birdhouse image because I recently got Cindy Loo. But I was confused with the assignment too and thought we had to do a birdcage. That's what we get for working so far ahead, huh!!! Another beautiful card from you. The colors are gorgeous.
