New Home

My brother and his girlfriend moved house yesterday...or at least they were due to...not sure if they got snowed off! So, I've made them a 'New Home' card...using a digi from Pollycraft called (rather appropriately) 'New Home', which I coloured using watercolour pencils. I've not seen their new house, but I'm fairly sure the colours I've used are not accurate...lol...but I wanted to make something bright and cheerful...and I love these '72 & Sunny' papers from We R Memory Keepers! I distressed the edges a little, and added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The brads are BasicGrey, and the twine is from the Ribbon Girls.
