Congrats On Your New Home

Second post for me today.  If you're looking for my Less Is More and Anything Goes Challenge post, please scroll down one.

I had some extra time and decided to participate in a couple of challenges I haven't been able to recently.  Plus, it allowed me to stay off my broken foot a bit more.  So I pulled out a couple of sets by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company and got to work.

After stamping my main image twice from Tweet That in memento tuxedo black onto MFP white card stock then coloring with prismacolor markers, I cut one image out to pop up later.  Then I lightly stippled Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink over and around the image before deciding to add the limbs of the bare tree of Tree Greetings stamped in Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink before doodling a frame around the main image and adding some faux brads.  Then I added the stamped and layered sentiment before adding the popped up birdhouse along with some ribbon.

Challenges entered:

Speedy Fox and Friends #144 - Doodle A Frame
FOSTV #57 - New Home
