Welcome Home card

Hello everyone,

I'm back today with a quick post to share a card. I have some good friends who returned from a 3 month cruise yesterday and wanted to make a little card to welcome them back after their adventures.

I kept this very simple with an embossed sentiment and the pink die cut and stamped house. I added a striped paper heart to the house and put glossy accents over it for some shine, and finally added three flower sequins for some extra sparkle.

I was inspired by the current Muse challenge card by Gillian Ross

which had lots of white space and a pop of pink.

I also wanted to play for the first time over at Keep it Simple challenge

where we are asked to use bright colours and sparkly things.

The challenge at the Cas-ual Fridays challenge this time is to use threes and this has three layers and three sequins.

That's all for today, but thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.
