A new birdhouse for Grandad!

Well, I had intended to make this to enter into the Dutch Dare Challenge (as this is where the birdhouse template came from - go and have a look) after seeing the wonderful cards they'd made, but work has been crazy the last couple of days, and I just haven't really had the brainpower to finish it in time, but here it is anyway:
My first card for ages with no stamped image/Promarkers! I've used striped paper from the Papermania Secret Garden paper pack, and the little birds are chipboard toppers from a magazine freebie. Just added some silk ivy, and a load of Shamrock Green Flowersoft (moss) to go with the peel-off that I coloured green!

Challenges I'm entering:
Cupcake Craft #95 - One for the boys
Incy Wincy Designs #45 - One for the guys
Creative Inspirations #65 - One for the boys
Fab N Funky #28 - Just for Dad
Magical Crafts Fortnightly # 17 - Father's Day
A Spoon Full Of Sugar #108 - Enjoying the sunshine

I think you have done it perfectly!
