Papertrey Ink New Home card

Hello everyone,

We are onto Day 6 of the PTI Anniversary today and we were asked to use a sketch from 5 that Nichole posted on her blog. I liked all of the sketches and will probably get round to using each of them but today I chose this one


There seems to be a lot of flowers coming up in this release so I was inspired to get out my sets and create  background paper using a variety of flowers from several sets, in raspberry fizz, spring moss and aqua mist ink. I inked the edge and matted it onto raspberry fizz card before placing in on the base card. I cut the wine bottle tag in aqua mist and cut it down to fit on the card after wrapping some ribbon around it. I then cut an oval doily on my Silhouette Cameo (still getting used to it - but loving it so far), and added the die cut house from Love Lives Here. The sentiment came from the same set.

I'm really enjoying these challenges but I'm off for a nap now before I get to see what goodies everyone else produces. I didn't sleep so well last night and as we're off to a quiz evening tonight, my brain needs a rest or I won't be any help to my team. Who am I kidding. A sleep won't make much difference in that direction unless a memory transplant can happen while I'm asleep :)!

Thanks for looking
