New Home Card

 Something a little different today, although using lots of elements I really adore......using up scraps (paper, scrim heart outlines, ribbon), recycling ("kraft" card from the inside of wrapping paper, corrugated roof and door from my Starbucks wrapper), die cuts (house, circles, scrim), sewing (cross stitch to hold scrim and die cuts), square card base, bling.......

And I'm so pleased with the result (for once NO areas I would alter, which is very rare!), I'm going to use up some blue scraps and see if I can get another one made that I'm equally happy with.

So, I would like to enter the following challenges:
Paper Pretties - Texture (corrugated roof, scrim, sewing, 3d)
Catered Crop - Hearts
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Allsorts - Free and Easy February (2nd Entry)
 CES  - Lots of Layers (more than 3)
Hiding in my Craft Room - Super Scraps Saturday
