#13 Challenge Joan's Garden

This week the challenge at Joan's Garden is to make a card using the colors, yellow, black and white, use a frame and finally use something "spring" in it. You should also use atleast one product that Joan carries.
Here's my card:



The birdhouse is from Impression Obsession. I stamped it two times and mounted the roofline and perch. The birds are also a die from IO. Joan can order IO's products.
The flowers, corner and spring border are all punches.
I used two folders for this project. The yellow background is a folder from Spellbinders called Delightful Daisies. Joan carries this folder.
The frame is from Sizzix. The folder I used inside the frame is a Cuttlebug Stylized Flowers. I inked the folder with yellow ink and then put it through my Big Shot. It was then trimmed to fit inside the frame.
Besides the dies and stamp I used brads, paper flowers and three guinea feathers. And yes, they are from my chickens! Hah.
Go to Joan's and see her products and tthe other challenge cards.
