New Home

Evening.  Spent a bit of time in my crafty room this evening.  Was mainly working on my DT cards but did get this little one done.  I was itching to use some papers from Papermania that I got over christmas.  I used the sketch over at Sketch Saturday as the layout for my card.
The stamp is one that I have had for absolutely ages.  It was actually a free gift in a magazine but can't remember which one and the packaging has long since disappeared.  I coloured with promarkers and tried to keep it quite simple.  As mentioned earlier all the papers are from Papermania and are a capsule collection.  They coordinate together beautifully.  The strip across the centre of the card is a piece of the backing paper that has been punched with a border punch and a lovely dark blue velvet ribbon added.  Finished the card off with lots of gems and some flower embellishments which I have had for about a year.  Finally found a project to use them on lol.
A quick pic of the inside of the card.
One of my resolutions in crafting this year is to concentrate on the inside as well as the outside of the card.
Might have to go and adjust the position of the image on the card though.  Looking at the photo is seems to be on a bit of a wonk. Lol.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday - #188  use sketch
Ladybug Crafts - #51  use some new stash (papers and ribbon)
The Stamping Boutique - #23  Theme is 12 (I used 12 blue gems)

Thanks for looking and hope to see you back again soon.
