Old, New, Borrowed and blue






Well as you can tell from the blog heading Old, new, borrowed and blue is the challenge over at BY THE CUTE AND GIRLY this month. That gives you such a wide choice doesn't it? Remember there is a whole month to enter something and there are lots of lovely prizes up for grabs from our lovely sponsors. This is one of my makes which is NEW. I made this card for my crafty friend Wilma and her hubby Alex as they have just moved to a new house. I got a lovely new paper pack which is lilac, purple and green and it was just perfect for this card. Love making the shape too, I have an old bit of junk mail I got from the bank the shape of a house and have used it for this card shape, sticking 2 a6 cards together to make it three tier. The sentiments are all computer generated and I have finished it with lots of flower rub ons and tiny flowers and a gold butterfly. My only stamp is the house one, think it is home and heart. Coloured it with promarkers and copics.
I am entering this card into these challenges:
1. Critter Challenge - flowers and the colour purple
2. One Stitch at a Time - use something new (papers and rub ons)
4. Oh La La Challenge - use the colours of their blog for inspiration
