Polka Doodles Challenge - There's No Place Like Home

Happy Friday everyone, the weekend is nearly here and we have a new challenge for you over at Polka Doodles.
This week's theme is Colette's and she would like to see a project for a New Home.
I chose to make a pretty shaped card and I made my own template by drawing round a chipboard book scalloped shape. I find these quite handy as I don't yet own any of those Grand Nestabilities.

All of the elements to make my card came from the Sundae of Seasons CD Summer collection. I printed out all of the stampies and the paper on to cream card which gives a soft, muted look to everything which I rather like as it's a little retro.
I traced the scallop shape on to the back of the paper and cut it out. I then attached the scallop to a circle card blank I made with the fold at the top (this makes it much easier for the card to stand up!)
I then cut out the pretty cottage and the flowery fences and coloured around the edges with a Cool Grey 2 Promarker to help the images stand out more on the card. I also added some Pastel Blue to the areas between the flowers.
I finished off with a computer generated sentiment cut out with nesties and a gorgeous butterfly from the same collection on the CD.
You have until 12 noon on Sunday 30 January to enter and good luck!
