....Home is where the heart is...

Hi everyone,

Tuesday Taggers challenge this week is to use a project that features a house. I thought is was a great idea so I just had to join in. Their sponsor this week is the Craft Barn and we are to add a link in our post to them. Raise The Bar challenge is wanting a hut on your project. Any type of home.  I used the cut for the light house from wall decor and more cartridge and cut it at 4". It had 2 layer to the cut but I added some paper behind the windows to make it pop. I used an embossing folder on the lighthouse, hoping to make it look like it had bricks.  The cloud was cut by hand and I should have made it a bit longer to go behind the lighthouse, but I didn't think if it untill I had finished the card. The seagulls were cut at 1" using life is a beach cartridge. I didn't have a sentiment I wanted so I used the computer and typed it up. I used the big shot with the top note die for the frame and  added white stitching around the frame to finish it off. 

Paper: DCWV autumn splendor DSP, SU close to cocoa, whisper white, crushed currey, garden green
Ink: white gel pen
Accessories: big shot top note die, embossing folder, computer sentiment, life is a beach , wall decor and more cricut cartridge's.

Thank you all for stopping by and visiting. Happy Creating everyone.
