Polka Doodles Challenge - Home Sweet Home

Good morning everyone, it's Friday again and the week seems to have disappeared very quickly for various reasons, not the least of which being that we currently have a very poorly bunny with what the vet described as being like motion sickness in humans. Poor Dill can't balance properly so lurches about sometimes rolling his eyes because he's feeling very dizzy. He's getting better really slowly as we have to feed him because he's been reluctant to eat.

We have a new challenge for you over at Polka Doodles and this week's theme is Home Sweet Home, chosen by Saskia. She would like to see a project involving a house, new home etc. Some friends of ours have just moved house and are now living just a few streets away so this is the card I made for them.

All the elements on my easel card are from the A Double Sprinkle Of Kraft CD which you might have guessed is a favourite of mine. I printed out the cute birdhouse image and coloured it with Promarkers. I then inked around the edges and set it on a soft gold mat.
I made up the card as you see with some of the pretty papers then added a layered border, a greeting panel from the sheet of DIY sentiments where you can create your own and a layered flower with a button from my collection.
I finished off with some pearls and some pretty butterflies which I added for a 3D effect.

You have until 12 noon on Sunday 10 July to enter and good luck! Don't forget to pop over and see the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.
 I'm entering my card in the following challenge:
