Be it ever so humble.......

Just a quick post today - Donna Baker over at Stamp TV is hosting the sketch challenge this week and I think it's a CAS one. The challenges over there are a lot of fun, if you're lucky enough to win you get to choose a set of stamps. 
 I made this card yesterday and the front was so quick and easy I had to keep going and decorate the inside too!
I should explain that I have a 'thing' about bird houses!! I have a few around the house, inside and out. Some china, some timber and a few that I've stitched. So when I saw Rupa Shevde's stamp set 'home tweet home' I couldn't resist!!!
So the card:
I started with Sahara Sand from SU then used some DP from The Paper Patch.
I stamped one of the little birdhouses onto Sahara Sand with Memento Tuxedo Black.  I clear embossed this before colouring  with  Copic markers. This was then mounted onto Barely Banana and then an olive green from Bazzill before attaching to the card front with foam tape.  The sentiment is computer generated. 
 Inside the card I've used the DP again and stamped the larger birdhouse onto Sahara Sand. Clear embossed and coloured as the front. I made a little sold sign to hang on the front of the birdhouse with gold thread and completed the sentiment to finish off.
My sister-in-law is about to move house over in  England so this little card will be going to her!
Hope you have a relaxing Sunday.......
