Sharing An Oldie On Friday

Hi Crafters,
 
It's Friday again and time to 'Share an Oldie' with Erika at Snappy Crafts just for fun. You can join in with us and share one of your crafty projects that you have made in the past and leave Erika a comment to let her know that you have.
 
 

This is a wooden birdhouse that I decorated a while ago...2012 I think. The papers were from a Glitz 6 x 6 paper pad and I die-cut the roof tiles using a Spellbinders Moroccan Accents die. I used some leaf ribbon, mini roses and braid to trim the edges. The larger flowers on the front have been dipped in a watered down pva glue mixture and sprinkled with glitter - they look fabulous in real life and I used a metal flower to accent one of them. The bird is a Prickly Pear die.
 
A quick post from me again today I'm afraid - I'm looking forward to the weekend.
Hope you have a fabulous crafty day!
 
Lorraine

This is absolutely precious. You got such wonderful detail on the roof with the die cuts. The floral elements and the sweet bird just pull it altogether for a soft and sweet look. Sorry I was so behind in visiting. Hugs!
