Bird house New Home card

Just a quick post today as I have a lot on today.
Firstly I have to apologize for the photography on this card. It was extremely difficult to get a photo of this card in it's true colours. The real thing actually looks much cleaner and brighter .... The photo has a bit of a yellowish hue and the inked edges are more prominent in the photo than in reality, which makes it look grubby to me.

This bird house card was inspired by the bird house Easter egg box I made some time back.
Cutting out the bird house was fun trying to get both sides  the same angle.

Here's a list of the tools and materials used for this project
Stampin' up!s punches, 
Boho the flower punch, 
Word window punch,
Label punch
1" circle punch
1 1/4" circle punch 
Bird punch, 
scallop border punch.

Stampin' up inks. 
Soft suede 
Crumb cake. 
Early Espresso.
Pretty in pink
Old olive.
The inks were used to daub the edges of the card

Stamp used,
The birds wing was stamped using a stamp from the tiny tags set and Early Espresso ink.
The body of the house was stamped using the Hardwood  background stamp and crumb cake ink.
The  greeting was  printed  off from my PC  and punched out with the word window punch.

One black shiny gemstone for the eye. 
One crystal for the centre of the flower.
Foam pads to raise the birdhouse and sentiment.
Stampin' up s DSP paper and cardstock.

The tiny pink heart is the waste from a Martha Stewart s border punch.
