Happy New Home

Morning! I'm back to share this card I've made for my friend who has just bought her first house. I used this weeks Less is More colour scheme, the current Wanna Sketch as well as this fortnights Addicted to CAS challenge of Dots. I used this pretty spotty paper as my starting point and paper pieced the house along with some Pool Party cardstock. I wanted the sentiment to look like smoke from the little chimney so I drew some wiggly lines to stamp my letters along (it's with a mini wooden alphabet set and heavy reliance on my Stamp-a-ma-jig! Haha!) For the little smoke swirls I masked off the flourishes in the Papertrey Sending a big Thank You stamp, then added some gems. I hope you like it, thanks for stopping by! (Apologies for the drab photography!)

Stamp - Doodlebug Home Sweet Home & Papertrey Sending a big Thank You
Paper - Echo Park Springtime
Cardstock - Stampin' Up Pool Party
Ink - Stampin' Up Pool Party & Smoky Slate
Other - clear gems
