Midweek Magnolias-Challenge #113 "Use a Number"

Happy Wednesday dear blogging friends!!

Today we start a brand new challenge over at Midweek Magnolias...for the next two weeks we want you to show us some numbers!!  Now how easy is could be a birthday, anniversary...well the possibilities are!!  Our sponsor as always is the wonderful Magnolia Sweden!

So going with one of those endless possibilities I decided to make a my card with a new home in mind!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I just bought Sandra's newest template at Sandra's Scrap Shop and thought it would be cute for a "new home" card...
this is Template #95 Waterlily...
I used some DP from my was called River Revels but can't remember who it's by...
I scored "veins" through the green cardstock leaf and then bended for dimension and distressed the veins before I added...yes...a bit of Frantage...
another view...
I added some cheesecloth that I distressed with Ranger's Forest Moss to give the flower part of the lily a bit more character...
this sweet Tilda is "Bubble Tilda" from the Pink Lemonade 2014 collection...
coloured with my distress re-inkers...
I added Liquid Pearls to the bubbles for dimension...
 closer view...
Tilda is mounted against a die cut bow...
the bow is a die cut from Frantic Stamper Inc. FRA-DIE-09243...
I drew and cut out some smaller extra petals for the center and added a resin flower dusted with Shabby Green Frantage...
the plaque is cut using Spellbinders Vintage Labels Four...
the number is Prima "Shabby Chic Treasure"...
the inside of the card...
computer generated sentiment is printed on die cut also from Spellbinders...
the words are die cuts from the Frantic Stamper Inc. FRA-DIE-09467...
the key is also Prima

And that my friends is a house warming card that I will add another personalization to when it goes to it's new home!!  Now come on over and join us...there really are SO MANY possibilities for this challenge!!  You should see what my fabulous teamies have to show you...hop on over to Midweek Magnolias and check out their GORGEOUS makes!!
