A Bird, a House...

I have a lot to be thankful for and thank you cards are still my favorite to make. My mom-in-law has been so sweet and I wanted to make her a card featuring a birdhouse, which she collects. This adorable image from Taylored Expressions' Cozy Cottages set was just the thing I needed.
I wanted to keep things clean and simple and so I used a fun ribbon punch on some pretty patterned paper, which I then adhered after stamping and coloring my image directly on my cardbase. A perfect sentiment to match and I was all done!
