Card for a new home



My friend just purchased her first house.  I am going there for a Christmas/housewarming party on the 20th, so I  thought I would make her a card.  It also gave me an excuse to use one of the ADORABLE key charms that my buddy Ruby sent to me!  Thanks Ruby!!!

Patterned Paper - Heidi Grace Designs by Fiskars
Solid Cardstock - The Paper Co
Stamp - Magnolia Tilda w/ key
Misc - Rhinestones, Key Charm by Blue Moon Beads, Silver stickles, ribbon by Sweet Petites, flowers from Michael's, Computer generated sentiment, Nestabilities Large Oval, Sharpie Markers, Gellyroll White Pen, Fiskars Scallop Edge Punch, Stampin' Up Ticket Punch

Challenges:
1. Sketch & Stash - sketch (and I finally broke out this paper I've been hoarding for my first home scrapbook!)
2. Pile it On - glitter (and I am applying for their DT - fingers crossed!)
3. Quixotic - so charming
4. Little Red Wagon - heavy metal
5. Stamp Something - glitzy somethings
6. Cute Card Thursday - swirly girly
7. Magnolia Down Under - bedazzled
8. Colour Create - purple, aqua, black, and white (I hope this counts - I just HAD to use this paper!)
9. Just Magnolia - card for someone special
10. 365 Cards - Pick 5 items from your stash (key charm, paper, ribbon, rhinestones, stickles)
11. Ildi Co - Black & bright colors
