Birdhouse Card - C.R.A.F.T Challenge entry

The challenge at C.R.A.F.T this week is to make a shaped card, and they are also looking for 2 new Design Team members - and this is my entry, it's for a friend's daughter's 12th birthday. The backing paper is from the lovely My Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow collection. The birds, flowers, ladybirds and lettering are from Polkadoodle's Sugar Birdies CD.

I coloured the birds and ladybirds with watercolour pencils, and layered the wings with foam pads and added glitter to them. The twig is plaited garden string with a ladybird bead and Bloom & Grow button sewn on.
