This is something I haven't done in a long while...combine 3 Challenges! WT380 (use a window or door), F4A122 (piercing), and IC342! I have a window on my white plank house, I added some piercing on the banner and sentiment and my inspiration is This cute picture w/ the house and trees.
The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I used a Cheery Lynn window die and a doily lace border punch for the the window. I added a little punched tea cup just for fun. The white plank house was done with a plastic frosting embossing sheet I found in the baking section of my local craft store. It's only one piece of clear plastic, but if you use a tan embossing mat under the card stock, it works just like an embossing folder. I used a lt sand marker in the recessed areas. The grassy border was stamped at the bottom and I added some teeny tiny little punched flowers and attached the die cut tree and fussy cut picnic basket. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
Thanks so much for looking! I'll have it blogged in just a bit: The Write Stuff

Oh Julie...this card is just amazing!!! I love the siding you made for your house and loved the ingenuity of using something from the baking department! GENIUS... Your cup in the window makes it look so homey and the off set window with the tree makes such an artistic statement! AND you managed to cover THREE challenges. I am lucky to do one!!! You have created a wonderful piece of art work. TYFS
