This is a diorama card. The challenge in the Free for All was to use a tutorial and combine it with a challenge. So I used the diorama tutorial: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/re.../diorama_card/
I added 2 1/2 " to the width and 2" to the height so I could use larger dies for larger openings. I used Spellbinders Label One the largest for the first (yellow) window and the largest Spellbinders circle on the second (green) window. The front panel uses the Just Rite sentiment and Rubberneckers Sunflowers. The second panel uses a digi from Free Digital Stamps and the back panel has a digital stamp from Digi Doodle shop. There is a boat on that stamp, but I cut it out as it would have been the wrong scale.
This is also for the Monthly theme of "In the neighborhood." I grew up in a small town in northeast Missouri and recall many homes like this one. Also, our town is next to Thousand Hills State Park and Forest Lake. So, I used the Welcome Home, because even though I have lived many places, that will always be home.
Thanks for taking a peek!
Oops! There are no mountains in Missouri, this must be Colorado! LOL

OMGosh, I love this Kathleen! Beautifully done!! I grew up in northwest Washington State as a small child and this reminds me of the old farm houses. I've always loved them. There is such a welcoming presence to them. Your card is delightful.
