Happy Days A New Home

Wowsers, is it Sunday already? Where do the weekends go?
Time for another challenge at The Crafty Pad!
This week for Challenge #126 we want you to make a card using the theme 
Something New! 
By this we mean a New House, New Baby, New Job & so on!
We're kindly sponsored by the Lovely Joanna Sheen this week.

Joanna is very kindly offering an awesome £10.00 Voucher to spend in her wonderful online store!
Joanna offers free P&P Worldwide
Here's my card

It's bright huh!
The image I have used is 'Milo Mouse New Home'

from The Crafty Pad Designs soooo cute!
I coloured the image with promarkers, cut it to shape & used a corner punch for detail.
I made the base card using a sheet of A4 coloured card which I scored folded & cut into a square.
I matted the image onto a piece of the same coloured card.

The design papers I have used are from the Two Peas In A digital set from My Grafico. 
I love these papers. I also added a little ribbon threaded decorative strip from a Marianne's Design's Creatables. These are readily available in many craft shops as well as on Joanna's site!
The ribbon is actually a strip of card as my ribbon just didn't match!

I added a large layered flower with a brad centre from my stash I also added a little silver key, 
hung on a piece of string!

The mark on my card is a watermark! lol
Here's why!
I always try to take my pics outside if I can as the light is generally better but every time I went out & got my card set up it started to rain! Needless to say every time I came indoors the rain stopped! 
*rolls eyes in exasperation* lol
The mark did go away once I brought the card indoors & it dried! Phew!
Thanks for stopping by!
