Color Challenge #239

This is my card for today's Color Challenge "Mellow Whites" on Splitcoaststampers.
Emily's colors are:
Mellow Moss
Kraft or Taupe (or any sandy color on the taupe side)

I got to play with this darling new release: WINGED WHISPERS from CLEAR DOLLAR

WHAT I DID: My card is a standard A2 (4 1/4 x 5 1/2). I made a template for my birdhouse. I cut out the top and bottom from Close To Cocoa, sponged the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain, then adhered to the card with dimensionals. I stamped my cute bird and embossed with Close To Cocoa and punched out, matted and used dimensionals. I thought it still needed something so I stitched the edges.

CARDSTOCK AND PAPERS:Westcoast Hyper White, Close To Cocoa (Stampin Up) (Making Memories)
INK:Close To Cocoa, Whisper White (Stampin Up), Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain
ACCESSORIES AND EMBELLISHMENTS:Heat Tool, Clear Embossing Powder, 1 1/4, 1/3/8 circle punches (Stampin Up), Martha Steward Branch Punch, Sponge, Dimensionals, Handmade Template, Needle, Floss, Paper Piercer
