Serendipity Stamps: Birdhouse Cling Set

My prayers and thoughts go out to everyone that is affected by the storm.  May God protect you and yours and keep you safe.  I am popping in to share a card with you that was the result of me winning a contest over at Serendipity Stamps.  I won a cool Scor Board and picked up this beautiful stamp set too.  I am really in to birdhouses for some reason.  This is a new obession so who knows what it will be months from now. :-)  Anyway, this set is called "Birdhouse Cling Set" and I must say that this is a really good quality stamp.  I love how every detail of the image came out perfectly. 
Here's my card:

Birdhouse Christmas

I started out with a 6x6 cardbase made using SU red cardstock.  I layered on various dp from MME 6x6 paperpack.  I matted my image on a scalloped circle Spellbinder's die.  The image was colored using Copics and I added "snow" to the leaves and around the birdhouse.  I also added Stickles and white gel pen on the edges.  I finished my card with a holly die from Marianne's as well as some crystal beads from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Thanks for looking and commenting.


Now get to creating...

Remember:  There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!
