MIM # 86 Inside Edition

   My participation in this week's MIM #86; The Inside Edition just fell into place. Since I am going to visit family in Arizona on Friday, I needed to make a house warming card for my niece who moved into her first house a couple of months ago.
   The base of the card is Canyon Clay. It is perfect since she lives in the area around Sedona where the soil is this color.


 Here is an up close shot of the wreath stamped in Kraft and which I fussy cut. The bird is from Canyon Clay felt. The sentiment from Wreath for all Seasons is stamped in Dark Chocolate. The buttons are Kraft.

 In keeping with the spirit of the MIM challenge, I used the Celebration die and stamp set for the inside sentiment. Foam dots were used to prop it up a bit.  The house from Love Lives Here is cut using Dark Chocolate felt.
  I still need to make a gift card holder to match this.
  Thanks for stopping by.
