New Home easel card


I was asked to make a new home card for somebody who has built a home in the country and has 2 cats, one black and one ginger and these needed to be included on the card. Checking through my images I found this lovely digi image which was a freebie from Lily-Boo Too a while ago. The person who asked me to make the card keeps chickens so I knew the bird in the chimney would amuse her.

I wanted to use some die cut cats but they looked as big as the house so I hit on the idea of making an easel card so the house could be on the front and the cats look as though they are on the lawn at the front of the house. The backing papers are K & Co Daisy. I bought these in the Glitterpot sale and they are ging to be so useful for Spring cards as the colours look so fresh. I used my brand new Flower lace MSBP on the border. A few Prima flowers and flat backed pearls and a die cut swirl which I cut in 2 just finish off the picture. The ticket sentiment is from Alissa designs.
This one is for 2 challenges, spring at Sophisticat and punch it at Simon Says.
