Easter Birdhouse w/G45 Sweet Sentiments

Hi all,
I made this birdhouse about a month ago and didn't post it because I was thinking of submitting it as one of my projects for their design team call. After thinking it over I decided not to do a submission.

So today I want to share this with you all. I used G45 Sweet Sentiments, flowers (colored w/copics), stickles, lace and the G45 ClingStamp Botanical Tea for the bird on the back of the house. I used water color pencils to color the bird. I hope you like it and get some inspiration. There are a lot of pictures as I wanted to catch everything for you all look at so sit back and enjoy. :D

Yes, there was a lot of fussy cutting. (lol) I'll tell ya this paper is so beautiful I just fell in love with this paper pack I went and bought another one. :D  
To make this I used a wooden birdhouse painted it white and then used TH vintage photo to ink up the sides and roof. I used around the base and then cut out the border from one of the 8x8 paper sheets and put it over the lace for a layered look. 
Paper - Sweet Sentiments paper pack 8x8
Ink - TH-Vintage photo, Copics for flowers - R11, R20, RV21
Stamps - G45 ClingStamps Botanical Tea
Accessories - Tags from stash, lace from Joanns, Stickles - Mercury Glass, pink ribbon from Michaels, flowers from Live and Love, 1 bronze brad in tag, twine.

Well I hope you found some inspiration for this Easter Season. I hope you all have a wonderful week and stay crafty.
