Less is More - Week 69 Recipe 'Not A Square'

I really enjoyed this week's challenge at Less is More which was to produce a card that is 'not a square' (or a rectangle). I played around with a few designs before settling for this little bird house cut from a 6x4 tent folded piece of Kraft cardstock. I embossed the front with a woodgrain embossing folder then die cut a circle in the front of the card, I added a little paper pieced birdie and a sentiment.

Cardbase: Kraft cardstock
Paper: Papermania 'Birdsong'
Dies: Spellbinders classic circle
Punches: Stampin' Up! Heart to Heart and Word Window
Sentiment: Computer genearated
Other: Stampin'Up twine, Crop-a-dile

It's been a busy week! The girls had a Jubilee day at school yesterday, followed by an after school disco which meant I was up and down school like a yo-yo! Being a (privilged) civil servant we get an extra bank holiday today, so yesterday to celebrate I coerced everyone at work into bringing in typically 'British food' so we could spend most of the day eating -which we did!  This morning I've put some bunting up outside the house so we're really getting in the mood for the Jubilee celebrations at No.62!
We're off to Ludlow tomorrow for the weekend for a friend's anniversary party. Then on Monday we're having a Jubilee party at home with friends.
Hope you all have a fab extra long weekend and enjoy the Jubilee celebrations!
