Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Birdhouse

Welcome to the second Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge for May.  Our challenge is called Birdhouse - perfect for this time of year (we have a pair of doves nesting in our back yard this year!).  Use the inspiration photo however you wish and by whatever inspires you.

For my card, I pulled out a Cat's Pajamas Birdhouse Cut Up.  I pulled various papers out that matched some of the colours of the birdhouses in the photo and matted it with an embossed, woodgrain grey to pull in the stripes and fact most birdhouses are wooden.   Needed a little something so I added a little bird, a sentiment and bows on the tops of the birdhouses.

Such sweet little birdhouses! I'm terrified of birds, but I love whimsical, pretty birdhouses (like yours). Go figure...
