A Home Made for Heather...

My good friend, Heather, has a dream and it is about to come true. I know that she and her adorable family had been looking for a house to buy for a very long time. I just got word that they have finally done it and will be moving to their new home very soon. I wanted to congratulate her with a card, especially as I'm sure she could use a lift from packing!
For this card, I was inspired by the wonderful colors of this week's Color Cue Challenge. I began by stamping the curtains behind this pretty window, then cut it out. I added some Flower Soft "blooms" in the sill for a homey feel. Next, I embossed my aqua panel with an embossing folder, trimming my card stock elements and then stamping the perfect sentiment. I then added some paper flowers, complete with button, and adhered it to a bright red ribbon. I'll be sending this off the Heather with the warmest and happiest wishes for her new home.
