Home Sweet Home

Hi everyone,

I had a lot of fun making my card this week, and I was just so surprised at how little time it took!
I had been making a couple of cards using the same sketch, so I didn't have to plan for very long - the most difficult part was working out which colours to use.

In the end I went for nice bold colours; purple and teal are my favourite! And I added the white digis to take away some of the colour.

Hope you like it!


Sorry, the lighting just wasn't good enough without the flash, so in the photo above you can't see the colours properly. But this one is to show a close-up view of the card.

So here is another one to show the colours!



SUPPLIES:

- Digi-stamp: "Home Sweet Home" by Kathy Martin, available from Two Peas In a Bucket

- Purple Bazzil cardstock

- Teal cardstock from The Papermill

- Stickles by Ranger, in Turquoise

- Fiskars scalloped border punch

- Crop-a-Dile corner chomper



I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

1. Sir Stampalot - Bring On the Bling
2. Papertake Weekly - White and Bright
3. Fab 'n' Funky - Spotty, Dotty and Stretchy Stripes
