Garden Birdhouses for #jai591 Sketch Challenge

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by a sketch from the Just Add Ink Challenge Blog - and the backyard birds we feed in winter!  Today it's sunny, cold and snowy here.  We have snow shower clouds moving through a sunny sky, it's quite beautiful :)  I hope my card inspires you to create today. 

Please click on either my card or the #jai591 image to visit their blog and enjoy the inspiration!

Assembly & Trix:

*  The little red Cardinal is coloured with Real Red Stampin' Blends Markers and sits on the edge of the birdhouse coloured with Crumb Cake Blends.  A little 'Trix' - cut a piece from the Beautiful Trees die, #155840 to create a branch.  

*  The scalloped square is really a scalloped rectangle die from the Scalloped Contours Dies, #155560.  The 'Trix' is to send it through the SCEM a second time to create a square. 

*  The Real Red 'Hello' is from the Garden Birdhouses Stamp Set, #155090  and die cut using the Layering Circles Dies, #151770

*  The Wintry 3D Embossing Folder provides texture to the Basic White cardstock layer.
