Have Yourself a Scrappy Little Christmas

I picked up a couple of little birdhouses at Michaels this afternoon to decorate for this week's Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge.

I painted this one with some red and green craft acrylic paints and then rummaged through my scraps for things I could put onto it.

On one side I put a subtle print... then went not-so-subtle on the roof, covering it in a couple of layers of VersaMark and gold embossing powder.

On the other side I used a more cheerful scrap, then shingled the roof with circles of a third scrap.

It's a crazy little house, but for a first effort I'm pretty pleased with it. Plus, I got to use up a few scraps!

I'm entering this scrappy little house in the following challenges:
