Nutcrafters Challenge Reminder

This is a quick half way reminder about the current challenge at Nutcrafters - 'Flowers and Lots of Them' - there's still plenty of time to enter and you can find all the details on the challenge blog here.

For my card I've used one of the stamps from the 'Birdsong' stamp set which you can find here on the Nutcrafters website.  I've paper pieced the bird house using kraft and pink gingham paper and then layered the image on to matching paper.  For the top and bottom edges I used my Threading Water punch on kraft paper and I coloured the little paper flowers to match the design and finished them with a little pink gem.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Make My Monday - 'die cuts/punches'
Craft Your Passion - 'gone country'
Word Play Saturday - 'anything'
Loves Rubberstamps - 'use dies or punches'
Bearly Mine Challenge - 'anything goes'
Sweet Stamps - 'anything goes'
Lady Anne's Challenges - 'anything goes'
Totally Stampalicious - 'favourite colour trio' (pink, brown and white)
