Home sweet home

Well, i wrote this on my laptop at home before heading off but never checked the photos and they all uploaded upside down!! So, I discovered a way of uploading fom my iphone. Hopefully the quality is still there, sorry if it's not - I'll have a check when I get back Monday. Fingers crossed this works in the short term.

Hope you're having a lovely Friday! I've had the day off so I can try and beat the traffic and head north for the weekend to stay with some friends!

I'm going to visit their new home and here's the card I made for them!

So you can see the colouring

So you can see the stickles

So you can see the dimension

Here's how I made it
Stamped image is Lili of the valley. Stamped in memento tuxedo black and coloured with copics.
Sentiment on the envelope is from elzybells little messages set. Stamped in memento bahama blue.

Cardstock and papers.
Image matted onto cardstock from stash
Papers are from my minds eye - wild asparagus set

Finishing touches
Papers and image are distressed with distress inking tool and tim holtz spiced marmalade distress ink.
Image has yellow stickles on inside of flower, turquoise stickles on butterfly bodies and the heart on the envelope has xmas red stickles.
Envelope also has been heat embossed.
Ribbon and gems are from stash
I cut the image and matted card using large oval nesties and cuttlebug.

It also works for these challenges:
City Crafter - I used their sketch
Crafty Pad - Embossing
Anything Challenge - Something Cute
Moving Along With the Times - at least 3 of the following:
1.Two different patterned papers
2. A button (or more)
3. Glitter
4. A key
5. A vintage image
6. Some leaves
7. A new technique
8. Embossing (heat or dry)
- I've done embossing, there are leaves, patterned papers and glitter!
Abc Challenge - d is for distressing
Creative Inspirations - 2 or more stamped images
If The Shoe Fits...Scrap It! - Flowers

Hope you like the card and this has all posted nicely from my iPhone! Xxx
