House-warming card

I made a house-warming card, a couple actually, and I even mailed one and gave the other away...that's huge for me, usually when I make something I have to keep it. My box of cards keeps growing. What am I saving them for? No idea. But I like to have them. :)

Anyway, here is my card. It's a pure scraplift from www.splitcoaststampers.com, but I had to change the papers and colors, so I wanted to post it anyway. The house is part of the jumbo wheel called Neighborhood (item #109685)The cardstock colors are Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, and Bashful Blue, and those color markers along with Certainly Celery and Real Red were also used. The striped ribbon really tied a nice knot, I usually struggle with that a lot more than I did with this one - it's Pumpkin Pie 1/2" Striped Grosgain Ribbon (#110715) now I need to put the rest of the colors on my wishlist! The patterned paper is from the Washington Apple designer series paper collection that was recently retired from the last catalog.

The house, circle, and clouds are all pop-dotted, and with the ribbon knot it was a little bulky. I'll be sure to post if my card comes back to me from the post office, but I hope it won't. The "congratulations" greeting is from the Fun & Fast Notes set (#113500) which is one of my favorites!

Thanks for looking!
