Backyard Blast - Day 2!

Welcome to the EMBELLISH-ONLINE
Backyard Blast Blog Hop
Day Two!
Our theme this month is Backyard Blast! While we are all enjoying our families, backyard gardens, BBQs, pool parties, picnics, camping, and outdoors this summer the IT Girls were challenged to create an outdoorsy/ summery creation using the wonderful sketch below designed by our fellow IT-Girl Christine! Didn't she do an amazing job?! I love it! This month you have a chance at winning a prize pack consisting of American Crafts Backyard products! These products are so much fun, you don't want to miss the chance to win these!!! In order for your chance to win you just simply have to make a creation with the above sketch, and upload it in the Embellish-Online Gallery with the keyword BLOGHOP1.

In case you missed Day One you need to hop back over to the EI Blog to start out the hop!

Now onto my project! I used papers from the American Crafts Backyard Collection to alter this adorable birdhouse and make a matching card. Since I made a card instead of a scrapbook layout, I changed the 3 images to just one. :)I absolutely adore the American Crafts Backyard Collection paper! It's beautiful! I have used the Boing and Splash sheets on my creations and the blue and brown go together so perfectly!
A close up of my Bird House stamp. I love the flower soft addition to this!
And here's my birdhouse! When I was walking through JoAnn's and saw this on sale I knew it would be so cute altered for my backyard project! I am very pleased how it turned out. I used a taupe color metallic paint to finish off the exposed wood. It added just enough sparkle and shimmer.
And the back of the finished birdhouse.
