A New Tuesday Throwdown Challenge!

Hello friends!  Hope your week has started out great so far!
I'm back today to share with you a brand new challenge for

TUESDAY THROWDOWN

This week we would like to see your "NEW HOME" themed creations!
Know someone who has recently moved into a new house?  Or how about a welcome to the neighborhood or a "from our house to yours" theme?
Can't wait to see what you come up with, here's what I've done for the challenge:
I've kept my card quite simple in design using our sponsor's image from My Grafico within the Kitchen Garden digital set.  The "New Home" sentiment banner was something that I had printed off on my computer along with the flower image.

I colored the flower image with my Copics (I've started my Copic coloring class and I'm practicing my coloring skills and learning tons so far!)  I've actually printed it out twice because I've cut out the flowers and popped them up on the image that's on the card front.  I also added some glossy accents to the center of the flowers.

The die cut border across the top is a stunning die cut from Whimsy Stamps.  I strung some ribbon through it and attached to the top of the card.

So I hope you will pop on over to the Tuesday Throwdown challenge blog to see all of the inspirational "new home" designs that the rest of the design team has come up with and I hope you will play along with us this week as well!  Can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Thanks so much for stopping in today and I'll be back again soon!

HUGS & SMILES
