Dies R Us "Check It Out!"

Good morning crafty friends...I'm here to share another altered project...an easy, peasy one too! 
 
My mother's checkbook cover was a little battered looking and she wanted a new one but wasn't able to find any that she liked.   And, that leads us to this fun project...a checkbook cover. 
 
 
Birds are a favorite of my mom's and she has a lot of items embellished with them. 
 
 
Here you can see the original checkbook cover along with the die cuts and papers I used to make and embellish the new one.
 
 
I measured and cut the paper to the size of the original cover.  The birdhouse die cut was a little too tall so I had to alter the height.  I also cut out a few birds using another die cut in my stash.
 
 
I scored the cover to fold over the checkbook, and inked all of the edges.
 
 
And, here's the finished cover!  I added a coral heart to the center of the middle bird house.  The clouds are inked with the same blue as the cover edges.  A few branches and birds finish the cover.
