Summery "New Home" Card

For this card I used a lovely "Bird House" digi stamp from Beccy's Place and a cute little birdie from Bouts'd'Papiers.

After colouring the cute images using Promarkers (Satin, Caramel, Cocoa, Pale Pink. Antique Pink, Pastel Yellow & Ivory) I layered up some lovely patterned papers from Stamping All Day's Download Site, Added the ribbon, then using Nesties Label dies I cut out the image and little sentiment tag and adhered them to the card, I then added a few pearls just to finish off.

I think the pink ribbon and trims give the card a pretty summery feel, love the cute little birdie too!
