Sweet Sunday New Digs

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC104. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest Thing.

My brother and his wife have been building a new house and they finally get to move in this Friday so I made a congrats card to send them.

I used Cozy Cottages from Taylored Expressions. During February, March and April, Taylored Expressions will donate $7.00 from the sale of each Cozy Cottages set to Habitat for Humanity. It's a wonderful stamp set to benefit a fabulous organization.

The house is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto choice buttercream and coloured with copics. I added some clear glaze to the windows then cut it out. I stamped the sentiment then cut it out with my Take Note 3 die. The patterned papers are from October Afternoon Campfire, and I thought the starry night was a perfect fit with the house. I added a yellow picket fence then stitched on a layer of blush red dark. I placed three clear rhinestones on the background layer...not exactly as the sketch shows, but it works with my card.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
