Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge for January 2012

Good morning and Happy Chinese New Year. Today I am the host of the Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge. Since February is a week away, I picked the following picture for inspiration and hope you can join us along. All you have to do is to creation a project (ie. card, Linkscrapbook page, altered or 3D items, etc) and join us, you can be one of the lucky $25.00 Magnolia-licious gift certificate winner. Simple enough?

Here is the inspiration picture

Today my project is a bird house that made with the Tilda with Cozy Heart from the Sweet Crazy Love 2012 Collection. Isn't she cute??!!

Here is my finished project. I made a bird house treat holder

I am also using this project for other challenges. Please scroll down to the bottom of this post for the challenges info..

Here is a sentiment from Magnolia as well

Closer view show you the panel pieces of the roof. I punched them with a MS border punch, then rubbed some distressing ink on the edges.
