Shabby chic birdhouse card & some freebies !

Here is another DT card  made for 'Beccy's Place' using Beccy's
'Shabby chic birdhouse' digi image available HERE.
I used some lovely snow white Linen card I bought ages ago.
It's whiter than my usual Linen card & the grain is more raised.
I made an A5 card for a change & a different fold also. The front
 part is folded back on itself, I am sure you have all seen one
 before though lol. I coloured the image with various Promarkers,
 I will list then later...all will become clear why soon. I made an 
orange matt behind the main image. The sentiment is computer
 generated, I went with a new home theme. I decided
 ( with Beccy's permission) to make matching backing
 papers etc. for this image.You can see
 a bit of it on this card I hope.Anyway I will post them after
 the card here so you can use them if you wish. I decoupaged one
 of the roses & also made a matching matt to the sentiment too.
Beccy always makes a black & white line drawing & a coloured
 image to match if you buy one of her super digi images.So if you
 use her black & white image here you can colour it to match
 my freebie papers. For your info I used the following Promarker
 colours. Sandstone & Cinnamon for the house, Pumpkin & Canary
 for the roses. Meadow green & leaf green for the leaves.
Sandstone for the matt below the label, I printed the
 sentiment in a rich brown colour . I hope you like the idea
 of matching background papers/vellums/inserts. If you do
 I will be making more :)
Another big welcome to my latest followers, welcome aboard.
ps. Forgot to say, I will be posting several freebie papers to match
 Beccy's coloured Bird house image tomorrow .Don't forget to check
out her June challenge HERE for a chance to win some
 of her lovely digi images or maybe get to be her next guest designer.

Usual terms apply, free to use on your
cards  etc. but don't claim them as
your own and send people back here to
save them.Thanks :)

Thanks Annie, I have emailed Beccy, must be an oversight . The time difference ( Australia) doesn't help of course too.I am sure it will be there very soon though :)
