"home tweet home" card

I don't have either "Straight from the Nest" or "Stretch Your Imagination" they suggest over at BBTB2 for this week's challenge and blog hop, but I do have DS, so I made my own birdhouse.  

How did I do it?

I cut the dreidel from JOTS, turned it upside down, trimmed the handle, and cut a circle from the middle for the house itself.  Welded a couple of shapes from GBS for the roof.  Used a rounded rectangle for the 'floor'
~ Bazzill cardstock
~ Blossoms and Butterflies paper
~ swirl border from Joys of the Seasons
~ bird from A Child's Year
~ 'home tweet home' is from Tear Drop cut at 1"  
~heart and branch are from Sweethearts (I wanted to use the kissing birds, too, but they didn't cut well that small)

Thanks for looking!!!!
