Dream Valley Challenge 2

ARGGH! I've just realised I forgot to add the sentiment to this 'New Home' card! Wot a plonker!!

This is for our new Vicar, who starts in 2 weeks but who's already moved in to the Vicarage. The image is a digi from Squiggle Stamps. It's part of the 'Orange Bird Studio Collection' which has a lovely Retro feel to it.

The sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday. I used Nitwits papers, I love those shades of blue and green together. I used Promarkers on the image, and Nesties to cut it out, and just stickled round the edge. The flowers are from stash, some cut with a Retro punch from a scrap of spotty paper. I added glossy Accents to the birdhouse roof and the Retro flowers. Gems and ribbon are from stash.

This is my DT card for Dream Valley Challenges where the theme is 'New Beginnings.' The prizes are a £10.00 Voucher from One Stop Card Crafts and some lush ribbons from Crafty Ribbons

Hop over and see what deliciousness the rest of the DT has made, and have a go! This, and all the following challenges, are going to be fortnightly.

I hope you're all having a peaceful Sunday!

Thanks for looking

luv, Mags x

Promarkers: Poppu, China Blue, Ivory, Lush Green, Putty, Forest Green

Just stunning - and it doesn't need a sentiment! I could do with a lesson on how to tie those fabulous bows. xx
