Thatched cottage

My friend Jan requested a special card for her sister's birthday. So here is the result. I used my PSX thatched cottage stamp. I absolutely love this stamp. Thatched cottages had always been a favourite with me . I had been wanting to use my Flower Soft for ages so I did today.
I'm absolutely stoked with the way this card turned out. The sketch is from Whiff of Joy. I'm not entering the DT challenge but loved the sketch.
Also my brand new Martha Stewart doiley lace punch arrived yesterday so that had to be used too.
Cardstock - Bazzill, SU very vanilla, K & Company K-ology Hannah cardstock pad
Stamps - PSX Thatched cottage, SU Think Happy Thoughts
Ink - Stazon timber brown
Accessories - Martha Stewart Doiley Lace, SU round and round scallop punches, bling, cream lace from stash, Flower Soft in colours of Heather, Spring, Summer, Sweet Pea, Prismacolour pencils and solvent, dimensionals.
Thanks for looking and I hope you like my card.
