New Beginnings

The challenge over at Do It With Digi's is New Beginnings.  The lovely Lynne over at Sentiments 4 You is kindly giving away a sentiment for this challenge so if you fancy a go pop over and visit her.  The only rule for the challenge is that you must only use digi stamps.

I decided to use this digi stamp of a house in the woods and thought it could be a new home card.  Unfortunately I don't know where it came from........ it would be so much easier if people giving away free digi stamps would actually put their name/blog on it when you download so you could actually acknowledge them.  Anyway I printed it out on pearl photo paper and it is matted onto copper mirri and dark brown cardstock.  The backing paper is from my stash but I think it's from Graphicus.  I imported the sentiment into a graphics programme to allow me to change the text from black to brown/sepia to match the main image and printed it out, again on pearl photo paper, and matted it on the same card as the main image.  I added a border at the side using a SU edger punch.  I then added a flourish which is a Sizzix die cut, some flowers, gems and ribbon to finish off the card.

Thanks for looking.
