CTMH Pemberley Altered Birdhouse

Hi there!

I just wanted to share a project I made for my MIL's Mothers Day present. Blue is her favorite color so I knew I had to use it somehow in her project. I've been hoarding my Pemberley paper packet ever since I got it, but I never really knew what I wanted to use it for. Then I found this great birdhouse at Michaels & it all came together!

All I did was cut out the sizes of paper to fit the birdhouse & adhered it with some Bonding Memories glue.
I used so many different embellishments, most are from Michaels, but the gorgeous lace & flowers on the front of the birdhouse are from Creating is Fun! Martha's shop is my go-to place for all my lace & trim.
The fringe trim on the side & the butterfly embellishment are from Recollections (by Michaels) and the pearl trim I got from Joann's.
The flowers on the card are from Recollections also & the pearl trim from Joann's. The sentiment is from an old stamp I found on Etsy. I just love it!

If you have any other questions, feel free to leave me a comment!
