Happiness At Your Door

Recently, my younger brother bought his first home, and it's a cozy little beauty!! One of those small but roomy homes that you love to go home to with a big yard in the back. Best thing is, he's only a 10 minute drive from the MOA (Mall of America)!! I foresee a trip sometime in the future, as there is an Archivers there in the MOA ;)
My Mom visited my brother for two weeks to help him unpack, sort, paint, buy a few pieces of furniture and decorate. I am told that it was a very productive visit and they had a lot of fun decorating :) 

So to congratulate him on his new journey, I made him a card, as any good crafting sister would ;)
I chose to use Flourishes "Cottage Home" because I love the trees and sentiment. I wanted everything to look like a soft sunset in the moors.
I stamped the Flourishes "Cottage Home" on Flourishes "Classic White" cardstock then colored it in with Copic Sketch makers. I sponged my sunset in with "Scattered Straw" and "Wild Honey" Distress Ink.
I used the W0 & W3 Gray's for my pebble path and the following Copic Sketch Collections:

I wanted to pop my top layer and image off the page with some pop dots, but the it wouldn't be very mail friendly, so I kept it flat. I am not normally a fan of flat cards, but I think it still looks ok :) As long as I can mail it out to him, that's all that matters to me :)


  1. Beautiful choice and lovely card for the new home owner. Love it!

  2. My goodness, your coloring is BEAUTIFUL!!!
