Nest-ling in

This challenge is pretty apt as there are lots of NEW things happening at Digi Doodle Shop too!

For more details click here.

And a brand new 99¢ Digi Deals category has been added.These images will only be around ’til March 1st 2012.So go grab ’em while they’re there!

There are a total of EIGHT new digi stamps in store also.

For my card I’ve used Birds Nest from Digi Doodle Shop.Although I’ve used it for a New Home card it could be applied to many different occasions.It’s been coloured with pastel pencils for a soft look and I allowed it to flow over the edge of the die cut.I chose papers that had a wallpaper feel to them and added a key charm to tie in with the theme too.The felt flowers topped with buttons also reflect the softness of the image and give a home furnishings touch.
