However, when I saw this sketch by Laura, I thought the little house's time had come! The sketch could be interpreted very literally, with a perfect spot for the cottage to take centre stage.
I had a lot of fun putting the image together. I used patterned papers from Basic Grey's "Urban Prairie" paper line for the cottage walls and the rolling hill, glazed the little windows with Glossy Accents and then lightly applied Star Dust Stickles over the glaze for a little shimmer. The roof was watermarked with a zig-zag pattern and mounted on dimensional foam. The door was watermarked with twill, the chimney with bitty squares and the sky with polka dots. I couldn't resist a dinky little rhinestone for the door handle :0)
ETA: I KNOW it is bad manners to brag shamelessly - but I just don't win things often enough to take it lying down :0) I was soooo excited and utterly STUNNED to be mentioned in the 2S4Y Fab 5 for this card! Thank you so much - that REALLY made my day!!!
