Wishing you well in your new home


A new home card using card and elements from a kit (think it was Hunkydory - not sure) - the main image being decoupaged. It's a three fold DL card. Difficult to get good photos on a dull day - much more shiny and bright IRL.

As the front is opened the inner fold is revealed:
