House It Going?

This is the second time in recent days that I have participated in a challenge.  Last week, I played along with the Hambo Hoedown and like a big doofus...forgot to email my card as per instructed so that I would get the free digi stamp for this week...ARGH!  Well...rather than griping...I did the good thing and bought the digi so I could play along this week! 

You can bet I will follow the directions COMPLETELY this time!  LOL

Here is my creation using the house digi and sentiment.  We were also tasked to use a common household item that you wouldn't normally use on a card. I dug through my toolbox to rescue two small nuts that were begging to be used as.........FLOWERS!  I colored them with a copic marker to give them some color and voila!   I drew in my own leaves and stems so they wouldn't be floating in the air.  I will admit that proportionately...they are BIG flowers...but it works!  My house is VERY colorful, but I figured a whimsical house called for whimsical colors.  It was fun!

Copic Colors Used:
House: BG000, BG01, BG02
Trim: Y000, Y00, Y11
Stone: C00, C0, C1, C2
Door: R32, R35
Roof/Shingles: E40, E41, E42
Shrubs/Leaves: YG11, YG13, YG17
