Snowy birdhouse

Hi, well, i've finally got my craft desk back (at least for today lol). My daughter is at school til 3 so i have a few hours to play then she said she " NEEDS my craft room cos she has a blog now" - who am i to argue with that- at least it keeps her busy and away from the tv!  Rebecca would love it if you have time to check out her blog and maybe leave a comment or even follow her http://becciscraftcorner.blogspot.com/
Anyway, today's card was a real challenge as it was the only thing i had with a robin on - how sad is that? Think i feel a shopping trip coming on! The inside is decorated to compliment the front, too.
Recipe:
Image was Lili of the valley, i've glittered it and matted and layered it with red, white and gingham card, snow flakes are punched and then i just tied a plain red ribbon round gingham layer. Everything is unused from last year's Christmas stash!
Enjoy the rest of the day,
Jo x
