Have Fun in your New Home

Evening folks.  Well, the holidays are now well and truly over.  Back to work tomorrow which I am not looking  forward too.  Would much rather be sat in my pyjamas in my crafty room lol.
Was rummaging through my stamps today and came across this one from Papermania (I bought it several months ago) which was just perfect for a new home card.
I decided to do an easel card.  I do love these style of cards but don't seem to make many of them.
I stamped the image and then used watercolours to colour in (still a bit of a novice at this).  I then cut out the image using one of my new spellbinder dies that I got for christmas.  I then threaded ribbon around the die cut.
The papers are from Papermania (capsule collection).
Here is another angle of the card.  The sentiment was typed on the computer.  I then cut it out and mounted it onto silver mirror board using the smaller spellbinder dies.  This is acting as the stopper.  The embellishments are flowers, pins and doily from WOC.  The small butterfly is a punch and the larger butterfly is from Papermania.  A few gems completed the card.
Apologies for the quality of the photos.  Taking photos is not my best skill.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
Bunny Zoe's - #19 Fancy Folds/ Shaped Cards
Simply Create Too - #3 Shape It Up
Hotshot Craft - #2 Easel Card
Allsorts - #135 New Beginnings

Thanks for popping by and hope to see you again soon.
Thanks also to my lovely followers and the comments that you leave.  I really enjoy reading them and appreciate your support.
