CC&S #151 Colours: New Home for Christmas

We took our Guide unit away last weekend so a quick post from me tonight for CAS Colours and Sketches as I still have a ton of things to catch up with! I love the colours Louise has chosen this week and decided to go with a card that could be Christmassy but I've actually made it as a new home card for my daughter Laura and her fiance Max who have moved to Bristol this week.

I stamped the image with Versamark and embossed with a silver tinsel EP (by accident!) which makes it quite sparkly but it looks just fine. I coloured parts of the image with Promarkers, added a few silver stars and some Stickles and matted and layered it into a piece of matching cardstock. The sentiment is computer generated and I added a few more stars for balance.

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Good Morning Robin (Little Claire)
Promarkers: Soft Green & Antique Pink (Letraset)
Sentiment Font: Allegro
Snippets: Aqua green cardstock, Silver stars

We had lots of lovely entries for our birthday challenge. It's great to have so many of you join in this week but it's going to be difficult to choose the winners! If you are new to our challenge I hope you can find time to play again.

In the meantime I hope that Laura's move is going well and that she is enjoying her first day in her new job!

  2. What a sweet little birdhouse image! Best wishes to your daughter and her fiance as they start a new chapter of their lives.

  3. I thought Christmas but it works just as well for a new home sentiment, with the cute little bird house. Love the sparkle and all the white space. Super card, glad you liked the colour combo too
