There's No Place Like Home

Hey there! 

A family friend and her husband recently built a new house. I know they were super excited to get moved in, so I put together a little gift for her and made this card to go along with it. 

The card layout is Deconstructed Sketch #99. I used the Day or Night stamp set by There She Goes, and I decided not to color it. Instead, I just did some sponging with some distress ink around the edges. The paper is Oliver by My Mind's Eye, and I did lots of stitching! I added the sentiment on a little flag and finished my card off with some pearls. 

Here are the challenges I played along with:
Stampin' for the Weekend - Die Cuts or Punches
