Birdhouse Gift Box! Card! and Winner! From the Fall / Halloween Blog Hop!!!

It's time for a fun "Link up Party" over at Robins Creative Cottage. Please join in the fun and see some of everyones favorite projects from the last month. For this link up party I wanted to showcase something different then a card or layout so I have decided to show this beatiful Birdhouse gift box I made.
 Before I get to the winner of the Halloween Blog Hop I would like to show you a card and gift box that I made for a couple of challenges this week.
 The first challenge is Fantabulous Cricut: this weeks challenge is "For the Birds" I decided to make this  card for their challenge. I used my gypsy to make the base of the card and welded two 4.5 inch circle together from George and Basic shapes. I then used Cindy Loo for the top part layers of the card, adding stickles and using my cuttlebug to emboss the inside of the card.
 I then decided to make a matching 3D birdhouse gift box. This is a SVG file that I received from Jani  over at Paper Compulsions, I have been dying to make it and so glad I finally got around to doing it! I used K.C. and Company pattern paper.

  I did make a few changes to the roof by adding a little texture and cutting it in layers and using a scalloped punch. The flowers are from the dollar store. I am also going to enter both these projects into The Cuttlebug Spot Challenge.
and now for what you all have been waiting for!!!!!
