A New Year and A New Home Card for A New Challenge at Just for Fun

Time for a new challenge at Just For Fun and rather than being a 'New Year' card, the theme is 'Anything New' so I have made a 'New Home' card for my best friend who recently moved house and changed job all at the same time!
I have used the Vintage Boho kit from Craftwork Cards which includes papers, sentiments, die cut flowers and birds with birdhouses. I thought the bird house was very apt for a new home. I have used some 'pink bubblegum' Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels to give a pearly sheen which you cant quite see (sorry!) and edged the flowers and sentiments with Worn Lipstick distress ink. The central panel uses the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis square die and I've finished with some lace and diamante sparkles.

I used my paper pricking tool to help shape the layers of the flowers before using Cosmic Shimmer glue to adhere the layers and attach the blooms to the card.

I hope you will pop over to the Just for Fun challenge blog and see the inspiration from the rest of the team and let us have a look at your 'New' makes!
thanks for looking!
