Deck the Birdhouse

***Edited to Add*****
This card was featured on the MFT Blog as a Favorite Find! Check it out Here!

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

My card is for today's SCS Color Challenge~Cherry Expresso Party. Love the colors that Betty picked but really kept thinking about chocolate covered cherries! Lol!

I decided to make a holiday card with the MFT Birdhouse set. Love that Dienamics set! Since it is a wintry card I added some snow er.....Frosted Lace Stickles. Not that I am ready for snow anytime soon! For the dessert option to add something corrugated....the closest I came was the embossing on the birdhouse to give it some dimension. I slipped a little green in there as one of my neutrals.
The layout is this weeks MFT Wed sketch #38.

Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Early Expresso, Pool Party, Memory Box Mistletoe
Ink: Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Accessories: MFT Dienamics Homespun Birdhouse and Branch w/Leaf, Ribbon, Frosted Lace Stickles, Pop Dots
I am also entering my card in the following challenges:
Paper Sundaes Challenge #88~ Anything Goes
Raise The Bar Challenge~ Things With Wings
