The Book Birdhouse

I've been wanting to make one of these for ages but couldn't find out how but finally last night after much searching I found it! Like the Book Christmas Trees these are too made from old books. I've punched a brown circle to give the impression of the opening to the birdhouse and stamped a little bird coloured with Promarkers. I've slightly coloured the roof in brown ink then use sparkle Mod Podge.On the roof I've punched out two MS butterfly and layered up and added gems for the body. I've threaded some ribbon through the middle and secured with an eyelet and a knot at the bottom and left a loop for the top with a little bead threaded through.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Bearly Mine Challenge - Anything Goes
Creative Inspiration - In The Garden
Fab 'n' Funky challenge - Anything but a Card
The Stamp Man Challenge  - Anything Goes
Hope you like it
Jeanette
