Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #73

At Hand Stamped Sentiments they are having a challenge which calls for using charms. I found a little birdhouse charm in my stash and thought I had to use it somehow.

I received a wonderful card kit in the mail through a Secret Sister Card Kit swap in SCS this week with great papers and embellishments and we all know when you get something new, you have to play.

I started with a 2 1/8" square and cut it in half diagonally. That was were I cut for the top of the birdhouse for the front of the card. The birdhouse itself is 3 inches x 5 1/2 inches and I cut it at the top to match the diagonal I had cut previously. The roof is 1/2 inch strips ran through my crimper to give it a beveled looking texture. The circle is cut out with a 1 3/8" circle punch and then I used my scallop circle punch for the outside of the card.
