Happy houses....

I dug into my stash of retired sets to make this card for a friend of mine who just purchased her first house! I was super excited for her and wanted to send her a cute card and remembered this set, Right at Home and thought it would be perfect. I cut out the top note die using the big shot and stamped the houses onto it. Then I colored them using watercolor pencils and the aquapainter. For the sentiment I used the "congratulations" from the Well-Scripted stamp set (this was in the Occassions mini -- I'm not sure if it will be in our new catalog but I hope it will!) Then I accented it with some pretty taffeta ribbon (kraft color). The red piece was textured using (you guessed it) my new favorite square lattice texture folder!

stamps: right at home, well-scripted
ink: basic black, watercolor pencils
paper: soft suede, real red, whisper white
other:top note die, square lattice embossing folder, kraft taffeta ribbon, aquapainter

Cute! I bought the new 'Good Neighbors' set that's sort of similar - I might have to steal this sketch!!
