IO Birdhouse Garden

I made this card for the Impression Obsession "Welcome to my Garden" Challenge.  The card came together differently than I'd envisioned.  The scene reminds me of my in-law's garden in Long Island, NY.  They live close to the beach and they have tall beautiful grasses in their garden as well as birdhouses.

I cut the birdhouses twice, once in white and once in blue.  I cut out some of the blue pieces and glued them on top of the white houses. I used copics to color the bottom of the birdhouses.  The birdhouses are popped up with foam tape to add dimension and the Circle Shaker Frame has a double layer of foam tape to pop it up even higher.  Thanks for looking!
