Welcome Home

Hi all!
This week, it's my turn to do a DT sample for the
You could win not just 1 but 5 Crafty Pad Design images

I used Anna At Gate With Flower for a Welcome Home Card

Anna is a real cutie & I thought she was perfect for a welcome home card!
Here's a closer look at the lovely lady!

I coloured her up with Promarkers, then
cut her out with an inverted scallop nestie then matted on to a 
scalloped circle mat of pink card stock!
I did try to break away from a square card but she was 
determined not to fit on anything else! lol
The papers I've used have been in my stash for ever & are from Do Crafts!
although I seem to use them lots, they never go down!

I used a Martha Stewart deep border punch to cut a lacy border, then,
I cut out a rose with my new Spellbinders die & added some punched leaves.
I also added a few little self adhesive gems.
The sentiment was made on the pc using my fave Sunshine Poppy  free font

Here is the inside of the card!
Thanks for stopping by!
