A New Home......

Hi there Susan here....

Today is the start of a new challenge at Cute Card Thursday and the theme is 'Make you own'. This week we want to see your cards/projects using embellishments you have made no shop bought flowers, stickers etc. You can use punches, stamps, paper and material to make your own. The sponsor this time is Some Odd Girl, and they will be giving the winner of this challenge the choice of up to 4 images from their store.

My card was made using backing papers from my stash, I mat and layered onto a plain blue card, all the edges were distressed and glittered. The orange card border was done using a Multi Shaper allDeco Punch, I love using these punches they are so versatile, because they do circles, ovals, squares, rectangles and straight edges, and turn corners great!!

My beautiful bird house is designed by Hope Jacare Doodles it is called 'Bird House 2' and can be found at Stitchy Bears Stamps shop. I used Pro-Markers to colour it in, I gently inked the background before distressing the edges and glittering.

My orange daisy type flowers were made using a die cut from Sizzix. I glittered them after joining the multi layers together.

My sentiment was made on the computer.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

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