Summer Home for the Birds

 I have been playing with some digital images. I used Meljens' Garden Birdhouse and combined it with a sketch (turned 180 degrees)  from Sweet Sunday
Challenges:
Meljens: Recipe-1 Bow, 3  Brads, and a circle
              Brads are the center of the flowers
Sweet Sunday: Use sketch 127
DYSU Challenge: Use wings...the little birds on the birdhouse flew there with their wings.
Craft Us Crazy: Anything goes.
Craft Your Day Away: Summertime theme
Fussy and Fancy Friday: Theme is summer...birds and flowers are a fun part of summer.
Digital Tuesday Challenge: Gardens with things with wings is theme challenge.

Supplies:
Digi: Meljens "Garden Birdhouse"
Stamp: Jessica Lynn Original Sentiment
Inks: Copics and Memento Summer Sky, Bamboo Leaves
Papers: Green, Blue , White CS from stash
Nesties Circle Dies, Martha Stewart Vine Trim Punch
Gingham Ribbon and Green Brads from Stash

We have enjoyed so many baby birds at our bird houses and feeders this summer. They are a joy to watch.
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
