New Home Card

I have made this card for my big sis and brother in law...She has just moved into the house of her dreams and I am so thrilled for her..I have used papermania's new  parisienne blue paper range..It is so pretty ...The sentimentsare both digi images.The ribbon ,pearls and buttons  are  from meiflower crafts .The flowers are made using an x cut palm punch.
The frame on the card front is so easy...I have popped a very basic turorial for a larger frame  under my blog header ...all you have to do is adjust the measurements and you can make any size  with frame,any frame width...just remember the gap between the first 2 measurements and the last  2 measurements must be the same [so that your inner frame edge depth is the same as your outer edge depth ....]
I have kept the design quite simple as my sis likes non fussy designs
