Case Study Challenge #82

It has been a long while since I joined a Case Study Challenge, but happened upon the blog this morning, and decided, with the clean and simple beauty of Laura Bassen's work and especially today's inspiration card, I just could not resist!!  I JUST YESTERDAY got my much awaited dies from W Plus 9 Studio...so this challenge was an absolute must for me:)!!
Here's Lauren's card:
 
And HERE'S MY CARD:
 I used 4 scrap color papers in dark red, orange mustard and olive.  The die cut roofs and branch (I cut by hand with scissors) are made with scraps of bazzill java(very dark brown).  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink (Daily Designs Sentiments).  I think these houses and birds are just tooooooo adorable..so glad I found just the perfect challenge to first use them:)!!
 It was hard to photograph, but I used my Papertrey Ink woodgrain texture plate to give some added dimension to the branch...but IRL, it looks cool!
So glad I got to play...Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
