For the Birds (stripes)

Hi again

A big shout out to Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge blog. Thank you for giving me something to challenge my creativity every week. This week's challenge is stripes.

 Of couse I love stripes. Stripes can make you look thinner, make a room look bigger, or add a designer touch of class. The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of stripes, (ok wait for it... ) Cabana stripes. By now you might have noticed that I have a little obsession with tropical inspired pieces.  Whatever, hey, it's been raining for a month straight here, so any excuse to pretend I am on a beach somewhere is a welcome escape.

I got the fabulous birdhouse die from Sizzix last week and have been making little houses for a few days. I made 4 in total. Each one looks different. You can totally change the look of something just by using different paper or color schemes.

So here is my take on the stripe challenge featuring my tropical cabana bird house.

I would be a happy bird if I had a cabana house like this one (haha)

Closer look at the striped base. Hot pink and lime green are my fave color combos.

Closer look at the roof of the house...

Thanks for stopping by, I will post some more bird houses tomorrow hopefully. See you soon.
