For the Birds ~ Double D Challenges

Good morning, friends~ I'm so glad you stopped by!  Today's slimline card was made for the new challenge starting up over at Double D Challenges, where the theme is "Birds / Nest / Birdhouse".

I started by stenciling a cloudy background, using Tumbled Glass DOX ink onto a piece of 80# Neenah Solar White cardstock.  I cut the stenciled panel using Pinkfresh Studio's Blank Stitch Slimline die and framed it using a piece of brown cardstock.  

The birdhouse is Spellbinders Build A Winter Birdhouse.  I did a little bit of distressing around the edges of the birdhouse to give it some dimension.  I added some Forget-Me-Not flowers from The Greetery and the larger flower and leaves are an old die set from Papertrey Ink.  

The bird is from Creative Expressions Stitched Festive Birds and the sentiment is also from Creative Expressions, A Litte Birdie Told Me.
