Happy New House

A card made with a Polkadoodles stamp today. I printed the paper from the All Around and Everywhere CD, this is the card I was making when I mislaid my punch - I was going to punch all around the page, but couldn't find the border punch. In the end, I was quite pleased with the way the punched corners looked when I backed them in white. The main image was coloured with promarkers, and cut out with nestabilities

I found that little beaded trim on clearance in Jo-Anns, I always haunt those ribbon aisles looking for bargains. The trim is made up of loads of little metal dots on a backing strip
and here is the inside of the card. I typed my own greeting onto one of the sentiment labels before cutting it out, and I used some scraps to pretty the inside of the card. The edges of the scallop card base were inked with one of the Promarker pinks - just run the wedge end around the card

Promarkers used:
pastel pink, dusky pink, cocktail pink, satin
apple green, lime zest and pear green
ice grey 1 to shadow
I will announce the winners of the Polkadoodle goodies tomorrow, see you then

Enfys, your card is so lovely. I love the pastel pink and the softness about the card. The house almost looks like it has pig-tails. (I'm not sure if you use that phrase in the UK, but it is a little pony tail on both sides of the head.) I've now got about 40 promarkers and along with the aqua markers I won last week, I plan on learning to use them. You're truly an inspiration. Hugs, dj1952

The punched corners set the stage for a beautiful card. I had wondered how just doing corners would look as I have the MS Fall Leaves corner punch but not the edge punch to match. After seeing this card I am off to make some loverly fall cards.
