My Door is Always Open!

Another fun inspiring web site called Lark for the Inspiration challenge over at Split Coast today. I chose one of Stef's samples - this cute cuckoo clock for my inspiration. I loved the bright colors and fanciful look of it! I made my round card with a scalloped circle nestability, sponged the edges with ink and sponged my clouds with my home made cloud template. See my tutorial on making clouds here.My house, flower and sentiment are from the Sewing Box Hugs stamp set by Waltzingmouse Stamps I stamped both the house and flower multiple times on different colors of Bitty Box Basics DP by PTI, cut out the pieces and layered them with foam dimensionals for a fun paper tole look.

Love this card, Julia! Thanks for showing me how perfect that stamp set would be for the little hospitality cards I make when we're having overnight guests. One of these days I'm going to have to break down and order some Waltzing Mouse stamps! (What am I waiting for??!!)
