Home Sweet Home

 I have made this card for a special lady who has had a tough time of it lately and continues to do so and on top of that is moving house.  I decided to make a card and decorated a box for it to go inside.
 The owl images were all from my recent Debbi Moore magazine.  This magazine is a wonderful buy at £4.99 every two months and you get ideas/inspiration in the magazine along with images/decoupage/backing papers and on top of this is a CD.
 For the backing papers I have used as I wanted them to be all the same on the card and on the box so I have used the Debbi Moore Shabby Chic Garden CD.  I have also used the flowers from the CD for decoration.
 To get some dimension I have used my new Crafter's Companion Hessian Textures embossing folder.  I love these new Textures folders as Crafter's Companion have coloured in the front of the embossing folder with the image that will be embossed eg the hessian.  This makes it so much easier if you are used a one-sided piece of card (eg it is a posh/patterned/decorate card with a white back) that you know which way to emboss properly.  It also makes it easier when you want to use just a specific area to emboss on your card or a specific area of the folder you want to use.  Fingers crossed they keep this idea up with other embossing folders.
I have finished the card and box off with flowers, sentiments/tags from the magazine, pearls, Joanna Sheen die-cut bunting, ribbon, buttons, stamped sentiments and I also stamped the sentiment on tissue paper to line the box with.

I like how you have used the theme, Kym. A great card with a heartfelt message of hope. Thanks for sharing with us at Unstampabelles this month - hope to see you back.

I am assuming there are not stamped sentiments on the card, only on the tag and box? If there are stamped sentiments on the card we cannot accept it for Unstampabelles challenges.
