Crafty Friends Challenge #2....Use Two Die Cuts.....

Hello my lovely friend's, I hope you've all had a good week and ready for the weekend, I'm off to Birmingham tomorrow to celebrate my friends 40th birthday, we are having afternoon tea at the champagne bar, I'm getting quite a regular there, lol.
Last week Mona was taking part in the Nina B Designs blog hop and she used the Spellbinders "Home Sweet Home" die set, which I fell in love with,  my local craft store had them in so decided to treat myself, the house die is so cute.
As part of the blog hop they are joining in the Crafty Friends Challenge which is to use two dies, so thought it would be a good time to use my new Spellbinders.
I also used a sketch from Retro Sketches, thanks Kirsty for the heads up on this great sketch blog, the sketch is from one of the previous challenges but was perfect for my house die.




I embellished the house with some lace, felt and a button, I die cut the felt using the heart and flower which is also from the "Home Sweet Home" set. I added a cluster of flowers over the flowers on the PP paper to give some dimension.

Supplies
Stamps- IBS Birthday Wishes
Papers- Pink Paislee Spring Jubilee
Pretties- IBS Flowers, lace, leaf punch, felt
Other- Spellbinder Home Sweet Home

Have a good weekend.
