Birdhouse Christmas Card

Hello Friends,




Challenge entered - Magnolia-licious  
Cheryl Rowley picked the challenge this month  - to create cards that are anything BUT a square or rectangle.  So that means any other shaped card will work for this challenge!! Hope this qualifies!!!

I have entered this card at Just Magnolia - It's Christmas 
& it can be anything Christmassy

 

Another quick post today, I made this Birdhouse Christmas card for my Parents, they live on a property backing on to a 100 hectare Reserve with lots of wildlife. Dad loves birds and likes spotting the different types of birds. He always has handy his bird book and binoculars.  I wanted to make something a little different for them this year and when the wonderful Magnolia Ink Magazine was released with the tutorial and pattern to make this little beauty I had to give it a go. Hope they like it.
