Let's Scrap Blog Hop card 2: Elizna's card

Next card was based on the sketch that Elizna used to make this gorgeous card you see at the left.
There's so much to love about this card - the way she used the tags, the dimensional hearts and the gorgeous border.
Having said that, my card, being for my father-in-law, is totally different!

Here it is:

The first point of inspiration for this card was the cute little Stampin' Up house stamps.  From there I thought of this map paper, which dictated my colour choice. 
I loved in the sketch how everything was in the bottom right hand corner, but I moved my sentiment up to cover a place name that was in a larger font and somewhat distracting.
I noticed that a couple of the girls were wetting the edges of their papers to distress them. I am totally loving this technique!
