Dutch Paper Crafts Butterfly House

The release i am using is called the Marianne Design "Garden Release" for Dutch Paper Crafts.
The set includes, 2 bench seats, topiary, butterfly, wheelbarrow and watering can.

For this project i created a Butterfly House wall hanging using Marianne Designs (butterfly, topiary LR0261) wheelbarrow and watering can LR0260:

Dies NOT in this release:
Joy Craft/ Noor Butterfly border 6002/0215
Marianne House - CR1219
Joy Craft (on side of house) 6002/0149
Marianne Designs fence LR0205
Cheery Lynn Lacy border (behind wheelbarrow and in windows for curtains) Anastasia Border B136
Spellbinders butterfly (giving Joy Crafts border a 3-d look) LF006
Marianne Designs flowers in watering can (from basket die) CR1208

What i did:
I bought a thin canvas board and covered it with designer paper using red line tape. Then i decorated it using the house, tag and dies.  I added the buttons using Fabric glue and wrapped the wire strung beads to them.  I added some rayon dyed ribbon to the top so it can be hung.  I attached the ribbon to the back and covered it with designer paper.
