New Home = New Card Design!

Once a year all of my first cousins and I get together for breakfast at Sugarcreek.  I know, you're thinking "only once a year?"  Believe me, between work, family, travel and all the other things life throws at us, we're fortunate to manage once a year.  Turns out my cousin Bob & his wife, Terri, just moved to a new home.  AHA!  A new card design began percolating in my brain.  Here's the result to share with you:
I made the 5 1/4" square base from Very Vanilla cs.  The face of the card is cut from Tip Top Taupe and layered.  The circle was cut using the Stampin' Up! Circles Collection Framelits.  The sunburst is from Kinda Eclectic, and the houses are from the now retired (sadly!) Holiday Home set.  I stamped each house with Versamark and heat set with white embossing powder.  The center house is cut from Watermelon Wonder.  I love the combination of these three colors!  I used the "congratulations" from Itty Bitty Banners (also retired) because it's what I had, but the "Bravo" set or "And Many More" also have great sentiments which would be lovely.  Finished it off with sequins from the Brights Assortment and a piece of Metallic Baker's Twine.  I hope you like it!

All of the supplies to make this card with the exception of the retired Holiday Home set can be purchased at my online store: .  I don't personally own the Holiday Home set, but I am fortunate to have a good friend who knew this stamp set was a winner and bought it before it was retired! (Thank you, Laura!)
