A New Home

Hi everyone, today I have the last of the the three cards I made for my two nieces and nephew who recently moved into a new house.  Thought they would enjoy discovering mail in their new letterbox.

To get me started on this card I used Day Three of the Daily Pink Challenges from over at Craftmad.
The challenge was to incorporate patchwork.  Which you can see down the side.  I cut the Kaisercraft patterned paper into small rectangles, attached and then stitched around them all.
I decided on an Easel card so that maybe my niece could put it up on a shelf in her new room.  I have layered up bright greens and pink cardstock.  Coloured this wonderful mushroom image from The Paper Shelter with my copic pens.  Finished with a gold sentiment sticker and a touch of bling.

Wishing you all a terrific Tuesday.

Oh before I go.....I have to share that I was a lucky winner over at Make it Monday.
