Just Because ~ TESC 119

Taylor's sketch, Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #119, was the inspiration for my card today! It was the perfect layout for this darling Branching Out set from Taylored Expressions.

I stamped, colored and cut out two separate branches, then stamped, colored and die cut the birdhouse. The tricky part was lacing the Linen Thread from the birdhouse to the branch, but it was so worth the effort!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Branching Out (Taylored Expressions)
Paper: cardstock & patterned paper (Taylored Expressions)

Oh my goodness, this is so adorable! What a fab job you did cutting out those branches, and tying the birdhouse onto one was definitely well worth the extra work! Cute, cute, cute!!

Holy cow, girl! This is SO adorable! I've never thought to put more than one of these branches together. It's amazing!! Love the little circle scallop behind the birdhouse too - such a wonderful accent.
