New House Card for Funday Friday Challenge #40-Anything Goes

Hello and it's Friday and that can only mean that it is Fun-Day Friday Challenge over at Jo's Scrap Shack! Hello and welcome to my blog, today for Group A our sponsor this week is Bugaboo, This weeks challenge: is Anything Goes :) I'm so ready to see spring that my taste in stamps lately is directed that way, were starting to see the weather breaking here and it's getting a bit warmer and less snow on the ground. Here is the card I made:
I chose the digi stamp Birdhouse-Ladybug its a really cute stamp, I wanted to do a card for someone getting a new house a friend of mine from work has been looking so when he finally finds the house that he wants, my card will be ready to give him with a nice house warming gift inside
This card came together pretty fast with my March counterfeit kit handy to use for the papers. I used a vanilla 5 X 7 card base in my stash, covered it with CTMH Buzz & Bumble paper pack, in the ovals cut with my CM oval cutters the red with lettering paper and the cream that was in the same CTMH kit with this I also stamped the background with 3 Twenty Crafts Say it with Heart stamp set:
 I used the flower style hexagon, stamping with CTMH inks: Goldrush and Indian Corn Blue. I also used
the hello from 3 Twenty Crafts stamp set Strike A Pose with the same CTMH Indian Corn Blue ink also dabbed the edges with it and popped it up with foam tape. Along the let side I added a few sunflowers punched with MS-Starburst punch and from my stash I found this black swirls and used those to look like they were holding the oval in place on the card :)
The inside of the card:

I printed off the sentiment from my Word processing program and brought in more of the flowers that were punched and the black swirls
