Card for New Homeowners

Challenge #2 will be up at MSB tomorrow! Check back here for the info and my entry.

In honor of the event, I decided to share a card I made using a super cute MSB digi stamp. I made this card for a friend of mine who just recently moved into a new house. To be honest I never would have thought to make her a card until I saw this image. Here it is:I had to rework this card because my first attempt just looked a little "hectic", if that makes sense. Here is the original: It's hard to tell from this picture, but I had originally stamped the background with the SU set "Sprinkles". It just didn't look right to me. So, in true scrappractical fashion I peeled the image off and slapped it onto the back of the cardstock and started over!:)

I've been trying to get used to embellishing my projects more. It's not easy for me because I am a CAS kinda girl. I think it has to do with the fact that I don't like to spend days working on one card. This one is a good blend. It's embellished but it didn't take me long at all.

Now if I can just remember to mail it out! :)
