Home Sweet Home Challenge at CCC

I am back this week with Crafty Creations Challenge.  I set the them as Home Sweet Home this week.  
I was away at the mayo with my oldest son this week, so I have some stuff, but was very limited.  I so wanted to work with the lovely Deena's digi stamp, but I forgot to print out before we left.  Duh!

I saw this type of card in Card Maker a while back.  Loved the look of it and wanted to give it a whirl.  All I got to say is holy smokes that was a lot of work.  Between cutting and re-cutting and then embossing the top panels it was more work than I thought it would be.  Used 4x8 base of Dessert Sand (CTMH). Then 1/4 less in Outdoor Denim.  Then came the hard part, all the panels.  There are the 1st layer on top of the full door then the 2nd layer of panels are a bit smaller, embossed and popped up.  Love the look of the card with the sanded edges and dept looks great in real lift.  Added the popped plaque with saying to add some contrast.
 I used a brad and metal tag for the door knob.  Below is the saying I stamped to finish off the inside.
Hope you join us at CCC this week for a chance to win some of Deena's wonderful digi images!
