Shabby vintage.....

Good Morning!!
Did you all have a lovely week-end?
I couldn't have had better weather ~ it was sunny and 77!
Just gorgeous! Now I have Spring fever! LOL

Anyways it is Monday and time for a new challenge at Wild Orchid
Crafts and Belles and Whistles. WOC new challenge is to create
something "Love themed" and Belles and Whistles
is to create something vintage. So I have decided to combine my
challenges.  My daughter has been driving me nuts about
doing a girly house for her and I finally got around to it:

This house is totally inspired by LilyBean's Paperie. I love her creations
and have been wanting to do a house for awhile. I settled for this
house box that I got from My Time Made Easy.  I am pretty pleased
with how it turned out and I hope my daughter will like it as well!
I found once I started adding stuff to it I couldn't stop! LOL
It still took me less time than a card though.
Here is the back:

The roof is just a bunch of buttons glued and then
a ton of tinsel glitter poured on top of them.
Here is a side view:

I have decided to put some of her favorite cookies inside:

Here is the matching card to go with the house box.
I just adore this sweet image and love that it can be used
for anything and everything. I have distressed all my edges with
vintage photo and then lightly went around with crackle paint.
I tried to follow the same design through with my card and house.

Inks ~distress inks
Accessories ~ Stick pin, pearls, flowers, pearl hearts,lace ~ WOC
Sentiments, felt and buttons ~ PTI

Don't forget to stop by the challenge blogs and see the rest of
the DT creations!! I was blown away this week by all
the gorgeous creations!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you
have a fabulous week!
