New Home!

I started to make a card for Sketch Saturday for today's sketch and then realised it's not my week to post a card so I went off on a tangent about half way through and ended up with a stepped card with a simple Hero Arts house stamped on the front panel with a PTI sentiment.

The recipient had a neutrals theme accented with copper in mind for her new living room so I incorporated some DCWV copper card in my "parquet flooring" and also in the individually laid bricks cut with a Tim Holtz die (I think) for the sides.

My image has been coloured with Copics.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes + a Sentiment
Creative Inspirations - Shape it Up (they don't want to see a regular square)
Cute Card Thursday - More than one Fold; and Stamping Sensations - Anything Goes.

Fab-U-Lous!! Such a great idea to use the step card and edge it with bricks and paving - the perfect new home card! xx
