Vera Lane Studio Tall Town Digis New Home Card

This new home card features digis and a sentiment from Vera Lane Studio's Tall Town digi set. I used the digi PNG versions to get my building placement just right and to modify the sentiment so that it was all on one line (ahhhhh, the beauty of digi stamps...easy modification).

The classic Dutch style houses on this Craft Sensations (a Dutch company) Home Sweet Home paper pad sheet coordinate perfectly with the digis and remind me of happy days spent wandering around Amsterdam, a beautiful city. 

No-brand border strip and ric-rac die cuts with a few Red Berry Nuvo Crystal Drops top it all off.

I thought you might enjoy a few photos from an Amsterdam visit; the paper's inspiration is evident. Oh, and let's see...where did I park my bike?!
