There's Magic in the Air - Spring challenge

Happy Thursday to you all!!  This post is for the challenge at There's Magic In The Air.
A big thanks to Selma for this great challenge which was to celebrate spring with cards that have 3-D flowers and leaves along with any acquired Paper Cupcake image. I used the image "Moss Topped Birdhouse" by Nina. I somewhat followed the design on Selma's card because I couldn't seem to find a sketch I liked that fit the challenge, so thanks again Selma.  After looking at this card I think I should  have made the image larger because it's overwhelmed by the Prima flowers........ggggrrrrrr  It took me quite awhile to get it cut out and colored with Copics so the next time I make a card using it, I will enlarge it so that it will be the dominate feature on the card .................I love birdhouses!
Paper is from scrap pile; MS border and leaf punches; Prima Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts;
the vellum flower and butterfly are from Jolee's Boutique.

Thanks so very much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.  I've still got to get my blog candy posted, if my order ever arrives so I can take a picture of it.  Don't ya think my followers should know what they have a chance to win............I do!

Please feel free to leave me a comment and if you fancy, become a follower so that you have a chance to win the candy............I'm keeping everyone in suspense....LOL
