For my card share I was able to play with this cute image from Meljens Designs who is our sponsor this week called ....Garden Birdhouse
 Coloured with Faber Castell pencils and an inked up sky.... 

Added a MB tree and made a little swing with a folded piece of DP and tied it onto the

The papers were a freebie from a magazine 'Hazy Days'...
