The orange paper reminded me of the angles of the orange on the wall. And the blue paper is very much like the mat on the floor. There is also a little house in the bottom right of the photo which I definitely had to include.
I started out by die-cutting the houses and the curves on the pattern paper. I adhered the orange paper straight to the card front and I then positioned the houses and glued them into place. Double-sided tape was then used to put the blue paper on top. I stamped the sentiment, added a few enamel dots and my thank-you card was finished.
The house die-cuts are from Simon Says Stamp 'Village'. The curved-stitched die is from Pretty Pink Posh. The orange paper is from Teresa Collins 'You are my Happy' and the blue paper is also Teresa Collins 'Memorabilia'. The sentiment is from Neat and Tangled 'Kindness Matters' and enamel dots from Papervine.
I'm entering a new challenge (for me) today. Little Tangles is part of the Neat and Tangled blog and now that I have Neat and Tangled stamps (although they are not required) and the colour combo matched my card perfectly, I decided to give it a go.
I'm also going to link this to the Simply Create Challenge #74 where their theme is 'Thanksgiving/Thank you'. This is my second entry and I've just realised that I used the same stamp for both cards!
And last but certainly not least, I will join in with the Addicted to Stamps Challenge # 121 where their theme is 'Anything Goes'. This is my billionth entry!!
We watched a huge fireworks show last night with the kids. It was so loud and colourful, an awesome display! You know your a crafter when your looking at fireworks and you start noticing patterns and colour combo's that would look good on your cards. How bizarre is that!
