Altered frame

I made this little house as a key /object holder. It started life as a bare photo frame. I took out the glass and filled in the gap with cardboard. I cut and glued an oblong piece of board to the front and then cut and glued on a roof shape. I covered the house part with cream card

and the roof with " My mind's eye" designer paper. I used the same paper to make the inside of the windows and used the opposite side of the paper to make the window and door frames. I screwed in a few hooks at the bottom to hold my bling. I screwwed in two round hooks at the top back to tie my ribbbon to. I covered a pen with the same paper as the roof and made a book mark with a very large paper clip. I tied ribbon on my bling and hung it onto the hooks. I finished off my house with a chimney and added some flowers,lace an a butterfly.
It took me several days to get it finished but I loved it when it was done.
I have entered it into a few challenges which are listed below.
3 or more layers + wings
