Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge #288, Mediterranean Moments, At Home with You, Stampin up

 This is the first time playing with this stampin up set called At home with you.  Oh gosh so many ideas and different seasons you can incorporate with this door.   It took me a couple tries with the framelits to line them up correctly but finally "SUCCESS".   I used an embossing folder for the brick background, and on the inside of the door I die cut some patterned paper to make it look like wallpaper.  However it still looked empty to me, so I added the little hanging sign that has the word Grateful on it, but still empty so I pulled out another stampin up set called Mediterranean Moments, and stamped the chair with the cat image.   I colored in the chair and then used my exacto knive to cut it out so you could see the "wallpaper" through it.  I didn't color the cat because the first few attempts at that were awful.   Coloring the wreath and flowerpots was a bit of work but I really like how they look.   I even like the glow of the lanterns.  Now after taking the picture I noticed I didn't make the back of the door any color.  OOPS... perhaps next time I will die cut out a piece of brown card stock so it's not so white.   I actually took a few different pictures of this card so you could see it from multiple angles.  The sentiment works well for my SCS (Scripture Card Sunday)  The verse is perfect for this card, because the last part of the verse "Knock, and it will be open"  how wonderful.   I'm going to submit this card to the challenge at:
I was inspired by spring, so I used the doorway as a platform to welcome spring with all of it blooms and colors.  

I'm also  going to include a picture of this little cutie enjoying a snack.  I think it turned out so nice with the bright green grass, and to think just about 2 weeks about we had 2 feet of snow.

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.  I hope you will take a look around at my other cards, projects and pictures.  I'd love to have you follow my blog or facebook page. 💜
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping.
