#107 New

'New' is the theme over at One Stitch at a Time this week.This means that you can use new items or make a card for a new baby, new home, etc. - lots of scope.

The sponsor this week is Crimson Cloud who will be giving 3 sets of Die Cuts to the winner.

I used the image 'Friendship and Tea' by Gert over at Stitchybear Digital Stores. It's suitable for a number of ocasions but I used it for a New Home card. I coloured the image with Promarkers and edged it with Distress Inks after rounding the corners. I used a mat of pale blue pearlised card with the Spellbinders scalloped nestie. I also used a 'frame' of the scalloped nestie using bright yellow card. I think the yellow card was by Ross Paper and the blue card was by Payperbox. The backing paper was from one of the shopping channels but I've forgotten which one because I've had it for years. The verse also comes with the digi image and I printed it slightly smaller, in pale blue, to match the colours in the image. I generated the new home sentiment in  the same colour. The scalloped card blank is by Craft UK via Joanna Sheen.

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
Pattie's Creations - Anything Goes
Moving Along With the Times - Cute and Cuddly - I'm not sure that mice are cuddly but they sure are cute!
