LOTV Challenge - something new

This is the first card I made in the New Year. I have been busy moving my craft area upstairs from the kitchen and I am still working on organizing things.

But last night I checked out the new LOTV challenge and thought I start by coloring the image. I ended up creating the card too, of course that meant staying up until past midnight...

Here is my card.
Photobucket

The challenge theme is "something new". I only have 4 LOTV stamps, two of which are Christmas stamps, so I decided to use the stamp "Window Box". I originally wanted to make it a "Welcome Spring" card, but since I couldn't find any spring related sentiments, I just turned it into a "New Home" card.

I stamped the image with memento ink, and colored with derwent coloursoft pencils. The designer paper is from my stash, I have no idea what company it comes from.

It's a pretty simple card again. I embellished with some polka dot ribbon and a bow, and added the sentiment with some silver cord. To finish it off I did some machine sewing.

A few challenges I am combining:

Lili's little fairies challenge - New Beginnings (new home)
Cute Card Thursday - What's new? (new home)
Dutch Dare - New Beginnings (new home)

And that's it! Hope you liked my card!
