Papertrey Ink New Home card



Blog-hop-logo

Hello everyone, and welcome. It's time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop and this time we were given oodles of inspiration to choose from. You may remember that my eldest son and his girlfriend were buying their first house, and all has gone well so they get the keys tomorrow. I wanted to make a congratulations card for them and was inspired by the colours in this photo



I've had autumn rose for a long time but not used it, so this colour combo gave me an excuse to break it out, and I came up with this card:-




 I die cut and stamped the house from Polka Dot Parade 10 in the three colours and mixed them up, before adding a tiny die cut heart to each roof. The scallop was cut from a MFT die and I added some cord through the stitch holes. The autumn rose card was stamped with a canvas background stamp from Impression Obsession, and Versamark ink. I love how items from different Companies go so well together.

They will be receiving this tomorrow along with some Champagne and a these glasses that I etched  a little while ago


to go with a meal I am sending them to have on their first night in the new house. I think I'm just as excited as they are!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the Hop.

Hugs
