No place like home......

Hi Susan here....this has to be one of my favourite digi images from Daisy Doodles.

I used an old sketch from Pear Tree Designs, I loved it. My backing papers are from Nitwits. I have distressed all the edges and mat and layered onto a piece of plain brown card from Basic Grey that I also distressed.

The butterfly is called a 'fly sticker' we have had these stickers for ages, they have a holographic surround, but I never really liked this so I have trimmed it off.

This gorgeous little digi image is from Daisy Doodles Shop and is called Birdhouse and comes with its own label!! I used Pro-Markers to colour it in and gently inked the background before distressing the edges and mat and layering it onto a piece of plain brown Basic Grey cardstock. I have added a little glitter to the butterflies on the stem.

My double sided satin ribbon is from our local market. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. All pearls and gems are from our local market.

This is the other part of the stamp set 'Birdhouse', I have glittered the two little butterflies in the centre and put glossy accents on the 'screws'. I gently inked the background to match the topper and distressed the edges then mat and layered onto brown cardstock from Basic Grey as before.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.

Love Susan
