Spring brings birds

Well, it is finally beginning to look and feel like spring -- a few weeks behind the norm for here, but I guess we take what we get, right?
I'll dedicate today's card to the bluebirds I've seen flying around. We have a couple of bluebird houses that look exactly like the birdhouse on the left up here (except most of them aren't painted, as my husband found out after painting one that birds prefer the wood unpainted).
The three birdhouse image is a digi that I printed out a while ago, so I'm sorry I can't give credit for it. The birdhouses are colored with pencils. The sentiment comes from a Stampin' Up set.
The papers are from a Making Memories Stack, and I added twine and a chipboard button to finish the card off.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday, Sketch 304
Paper Players 190, three of something (three birdhouses, obviously)
Challenges 4 Everybody, Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly Challenge, Spring has Sprung
Word Art Wednesday #127, Anything Goes.
