Sir Stampalot Challenge

Well at last I've got round to making the card for this exciting challenge which you can find out about by visiting Brenda's blog- what a great prize there is to be had donated by Sir Stampalot (will keep my fingers crossed).   The card I've made for my son who's moving in with his girlfriend at the end of this month.  I cut the shape with my Cricut (Zooballoo cartridge).  Covered it with brick effect craft paper that my husband bought years ago when he thought it would be a good idea to make doll's houses - he's never got round to it but the paper was useful lol.  Roof tiles I made using thick paper which I ran through a ribbler and cut tiles, a bit time consuming but it had the desired effect.  I used ribbon for the curtains and covered the windows with acetate to represent glass.  The window boxes where cut out of terracotta coloured card.  I made flowers with Flowersoft and punched out some fern like foliage. Cut out a door shape from red card, made a letter box and used peel off numbers and a brad for the handle.  The sentiment was computer generated and I cut out a frame with my Cricut to edge it.
