A New Home

A friend moved into her new home on's been quite a year, including a divorce and her first independent house purchase and I wanted to make her a card to mark the occasion. As luck would (or not) have it, only my black ink is working in my printer, so I was quite restricted as to what I could use. But not to be defeated, here's what I came up with.
It's a digi stamp coloured with Promarkers and a computer generated sentiment, using Segoe script font.
The papers were a freebie with the Making Cards magazine a few months back; they are called the Nancy Watt Classic Collection, and have little butterflies randomly printed all over. They are matted onto co-ordinating cardstock from my stash. I finished it off with an organza ribbon, a butterfly punch and some pearl gems.
I made a simple matching insert with inked edges.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Create4fun Challenge #41 ~ use a digi stamp
Ellephantastic Challenge #15 ~ Anything Goes!
One Stich At A Time #34 ~ Use Your Digi Stamps
Anything Goes challenge #20 ~ Ribbons
Cute Card Thursday #134 ~ What's Buggin' You (mine is a butterfly!)

Thanks for popping by, I'll be back tomorrow to share some fab ATC returns for a couple of swaps.
