Challenge #2 for CCCB: Ribbon and/or Lace

After being lucky enough to win the first monthly challenge at Crafters Cafe, I was eager to see what they would put up as a challenge for March.  Turned out to be Ribbon and/or Lace, as I have been trying some new stuff lately and have never used lace on a card, I thought I would use both ribbon and lace.

Template for my little bird house comes from Altered Emporium over at DeviantScrap.  I added a diecut bird emblem from fundamentals.  Punched out a number of  small flowers and added gems to the centres of some of them, twirled some raffia (vine in fence)  and quilling paper (branches going up birdhouse), made the little fence from the letter X in PSE and then cut it out on my Ecraft.  I have wrapped green ribbon around the fence for the vine and placed lace on the eaves of the birdhouse.  Don't know whether it is because I used lace, which is delicate or the fact that I feel delicate at the moment, due to a cold I have, but I used very muted colours to decorate this blue card.
