A New Home

Hello everybody.  Today I am posting a card for my nephew who has just moved house.  I know I seem to talk about him a lot but I don't have children of my own so I have "borrowed" my sister's son and he and his children are very close to John and me. Today  is his dad's 70th birthday. Happy birthday Michael and get well soon!
My Card

This is a 6 x 6 card base. I ran some white card through SB Dainty Dots folder, cut it into various sized rectangles and matted them all onto red card. The image was an internet find. I computer generated the sentiment together with the tiny house. Some red ribbon and pearls finished it off nicely.

Have a good day everybody and I hope you manage to fit in some crafting time!
