Good Luck in your New Home

I made this card for my aunt and uncle who are going to move into their new home soon - hopefully it won't be as wonky as this house!  I'm entering the Cuttlebug Mania 'New Home' challenge, Crafty Friends Challenge 'Special Occasion', Classic Design Team Open Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Stamp: Bugaboo 'AKV House' digi stamp
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Lacy Squares'
Embossing: X-cut 'Small Polka Hearts'
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: Light brown matt, white silk
Other: Wink of Stella, Computer generated sentiment 'Rockwell' font

I embossed the light brown card, trimmed it to size and attached it to the centre of the card front.  I printed the digi stamp onto white silk card, resized it and added the sentiment.   This was die-cut with the largest Lacy Squares die. The image was coloured with Promarkers and the windows highlighted with a Wink of Stella.  I cut two squares of white card and attached them to the rear of the image before fixing it to the centre of the card.
