New Home

This card is for one of my co-workers who just completed the purchase of their first home. I remember what an exciting time that was for me and wanted to make it special for her as well.

This has long been one of my favorite Papertrey Ink sets. It's called "Boards and Beams"and it has the perfect sentiments for any occasion involving a home. Plus the images are just the kind of house I love...I adore porches!

I colored the image with Copic Markers and popped the tree on dimensionals. The PP used is from My Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow collection.

Hope you are not sweltering where you are. Things have really cooled off here and we've even had rain the last couple of days.

All for now....





It's all about the details:
Card stock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye

Stamps: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Dimensionals, Ribbon, Rhinestones
Tools: Copic Markers
