Good Saturday morning.  It has been a couple of days since I was able to post.  Work has been very busy and I get home tired.  On top of that I had cataract surgery this week and have been recuperating.  My project today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Free For All Challenge to make a Christmas in July card but the catch was to use summer colors.  I went with pink and spring moss green with lots of white.

I started by cutting the tree lines and and white snow layers and crimping for texture and dimension.  I cut the house twice, once in green and the second in white so I could cut and trim the house.

I attached the tree and snow layers to the card and then cut and attached the frame with mounting tape.  I tucked the house in behind the frame and mounted it to the base with mounting tape. I added the stars in the sky and one on the tree in front of the house.  I arranged little pine boughs and pink flowers to the fence, roof top and door to add a festive holiday feel.  I added yellow stickles to the stars for the finishing touch.

Here’s a close up view from the side to show the dimension. I love the whimsy of the pink and green with the popped up stars in the sky.
