House on a Hill...

Creative Chicks Challenge # 9 from Stretch N Bubbles is this awesome little house and I just fell in love with it...There was something about the house that seem so homey...I couldn't wait to color it and put it on a card...
For my background it's just regular computer paper that I crumbled and inked,
spread it out and ironed it to make it simple to make when I want that kind of look for my card...
Please check out Stretch N Bubbles blog and pick up this image @
