Welcome to your new home

Hi guys, I'm back today with our latest challenge for we do doobadoo which is 
pins and pearls,
I've made this display for my Daughter and her hubby who are moving into their new home soon, we will be helping them with a few jobs which need doing first like painting and decorating etc so I made their card now lol,

As you know Kay's not into overly fussy or fancy so I've tried to keep it fussy free well for me at least!!!
Some of the DD products were in my latest DT package and were fab timing for what i needed to make,
I cut the house shape out of card stock and Maja Design paper from Live and love crafts then using another of the DD templates adapted the window and the door, I used the window template but left a border round, I didn't want a perfect look to the border so it kept in with the shabby chic theme, I stained the frame with distress ink here and there and add acetate behind with a small piece of another Maja design paper behind that,
the brick effect is made with a new soft board as is the roof design, all links below,

Closer view of soft board and window, to finish off the roof and to add some pearl detail I added a couple of paper art butterfly and a pearl flourish for their tails,

At the bottom of the display is one of the new paper art fences  and in front are a couple of the paper art flowers, as you can see there are a couple of pearls on here too,  the tree is a la la la crafts die and i added pearls on this also for blossom, 
the DD paper art keys I slightly edged with distress ink in vintage photo,
For the front garden of the house I used a  DD brick stencil with grunge paste for texture and detail, I should have heat dried this as it made my card  base wobble lol,
here too you can see the pins  I got from Live and Love crafts,used with my flowers from Sweet Lilac, Tilda with Ice and on the road Tilda are coloured with my copics then fussy cut out,  too these I have then added a strip or two of acetate behind to make them stand up,
