Creative Chick Challenge #6

Well... I got a bit grumpy last month, because I didn't get a challenge in on time, my forgetful falt entirely, so I missed out on the images for June.  Quite embarassed I was, especially since I'm on the SNB Design Team!  Talk about egg on my face.  Anyway, this month, I will be more prepared.  Says I. And this is such a sweet image ..... but then ALL Alison's images are!  Here is my first creation for the month!

Ingredients: Bidhouse image - SNB; cardstock - Bazzill; paper, rhinestones, - Kaisercraft; rub-ons - Craft Affair; markers - Bic; Heart Pin.

I coloured and trimmed multiple images, and layered it 3D... the roof I lifted with foam tape, the house and perch are adhered neat.  I put two images of the house together, with the hole cut out ... it gives a little depth so it looks like birdie is sitting inside.  The floral rub-ons were actually a border that I cut and overlapped, hoping to achieve a garden/vine effect that would nest the birdhouse.  Then I added the sentiment rub-on. I added large Ice Blue rhinestones in the corners, and added small ones throughout the flowers.  I added the Heart Pin - it just needed something else.   And YAY ME! I got it submitted with days to spare! 

Join the challenge! Go to SNB, and pick up your first free image for the month.  Submit it ON TIME and you will receive the next one via email... a great progressive challenge.... and you'll get a weekly freebie!  Thanks for peeping!

hugs and blessings,
