Bird House Blues

I would consider myself anything but a minimalist, especially when it comes to creating.  When I created a card for a Spellbinders new release, I did not embellish this birdhouse with the aim of showcasing the gate Die - you can see the Tutorial HERE

I could not resist adding some Maya Road flowers, along with some of the Sprigs
 Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® Die D-Lites™

The adorable Bird is from the Tweets  Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® Die D-Lites™ that comes with a base and a filigree layer - so many options.  I have coloured the top layer using Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko inks.   The gate is cut from the Gate Element  Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® Die D-Lites™.  All Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.

 Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner have been used on these cards.  The bling is from Want2Scrap.
