Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge #28

EDITED: My card was selected as a runner-up for this challenge! Such a wonderful surprise. Woo Hoo!! Will keep you posted on what I have won!
Over on Cuttlebug_Be_Inspired the challenge is to make a Home Sweet Home project.
As soon as I saw all the lovely examples, I just had to make the house card. It will be perfect for my niece who has just recently moved house.
I followed the instructions provided by Cassie Larson.

Using the Cuttlebug, I first embossed the 'house' section the cuttlebug using Swiss Dots, then the 'roof' using Tiny Bubbles. The bottom part of the roof section is raised using sticky dots, so that it slips over the 'awning'. Using my nestabilities, I cut out two windows and a door. Door & windows were attached using sticky dots. a stick-on 'congratulations' sentiment was placed on inside panel.

Hand punched flowers and handcut pots finish off my 'house' and turn it into a 'home'.

I am very pleased with how my little experiment turned out. I can't wait to give this one to my niece.
