Shabby Birds

Hello; hope your weekend is going well!  Why do they always pass so quickly?  I took a bit of time of work on this month's SFYTT...I'm usually finishing under the radar, so I am glad to get this one completed less than halfway through the month.

The image I used is from Clearly Digi Stamps digital set, Tweet Houses, drawn by Lisa Lara.  The different images and sentiments are adorable!  I combined an image and sentiment before printing with dark brown ink, then printed an extra birdhouse on kraft paper so I could trim and layer the images.  I added a bit of glitter to the top of the bird house, distressed the edges of the panels and added some brads for embellishing.

Image/Sentiment: Clearly Digi Stamps "Tweet Houses" Digi Set
Ink: Printer (dark brown), SU! Close to Cocoa Marker
Paper: PTI Kraft, Vintage Cream, and New Leaf, Echo Park DP
Embellies: Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter, Heidi Swapp Brads
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Can You Digi It: Bird is the Word
Clearly Inspired: Things With Wings
Crafts and Me: Use a Digi
SFYTT: Sketch
