The Pixie Cottage Challenge #72 - Sketch and/or Anything But A Card

It's another Once Upon A Wednesday at The Pixie Cottage and this week you have the option of the great sketch or you can go with our theme which is "Anything But A Card".
I decided to go with the theme this week and make a birdhouse.

Project Recipe:
Image - Finch by ARTish
Paper - DCWV The Guy Stack
Birdhouse - Joann's (just $1!!!)
Medium - Copic Markers
Paint - Anita's in Mocha Java
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Pearls - Recollections
Border Punch - Martha Stewart Lace Heart
Sentiment - Heidi Grace

This was the sketch but I chose the theme this week.

I simply painted the unfinished birdhouse with the brown paint. Then I punched strips of two different patterned papers with the heart border punch to make the "tiles".
I added just a few embellishments to the top and a flag with the sentiment.
I think it turned out cute and a great little project with the base birdhouse costing just $1.
We'd love to see you come along and play with us at The Pixie Cottage this week!
