Birdies and a Dovecote

I am entering today's card into another Less is More Challenge Week #275 and the colour for this week is Pastel Colours.
I found out on Saturday that I was one of the ShowCASe winners (Yay..happy dance) on the Saints, Dragons and Heroes challenge with my card which you can see HERE.
So here is my card for this week's challenge...
Winnie and Walter So Tweet
I used Winnie and Walter's stamps called So Tweet for the little birdies and coloured them with my Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush markers.  I popped them up onto a card front cut with the Columbus die from Mama Elephant and added some leaves and berries.
The 'Wishes' sentiment is cut from WPlus9 'Happy Wishes' die and the 'birthday is from Clearly Besotted 'Happy Birthday'.

On a similar birdie note,  the dovecote that my husband has been building me is finally finished and it is now perched on top of the trunk of a tree we had to reluctantly chop down last year.  Here it is:-

 The pair of collared doves that are regular visitors to our garden have been 'courting' (that's a polite way of saying what they have been up to!!) this weekend, so we may well see some baby doves visiting us soon.  I know that wild doves rarely nest in dovecotes but I am ever hopeful they may take up residence...if not then I am sure something eventually will...probably snails and slugs!!  It looks nice anyway.
I also happened to mention that I would like a hedgehog house to see if we can encourage some little spikey visitors to our garden and half an hour later my clever husband had built me this:-.

Perhaps if we get one nesting in it they might eat all the slugs that regularly eat our bedding plants and veggies!! Grrr..I hate slugs!
