Welcome

Something different from me today for my DT card for Totally Gorjuss where our challenge is Welcome. So think new home, babies etc and we have a brand new regular sponsor, Heather's Hobbie Haven. I saw a paper pieced house in a mag a few months ago and have kept the mag open at that page to remind me to have a go.  I used Echo Park Victorian Garden papers which were just perfect for the effect I wanted to achieve. I used DI Vintage Photo on all the edges, made the border to look like it had come from a notebook by using a hole punch and cutting into the holes. I added a paperclip, tiny tag from a candy win, distressed sentiment which was a mag freebie, punched leaves and Wild Orchid roses. I would like to enter this into the challenge of anything goes at Wild Orchid and floral at Papercrafting Journey.
