The house reminded me of some of those quaint beach houses one sees in beach towns along the Oregon shore. That's why I decided to colour it in vibrant, welcoming colours because that's exactly how those houses along the shore looked. The Blendabilities did a great job with those vibrant colours.
My base cardstock is Chocolate Chip. It has a lot of warmth in its tones and looks great with the Tangelo Twist which is in the next layer. The designer paper is from the 2014-2016 In-Colors Stack. I followed the sketch offered by Paper Craft Crew Challenge closely except that, instead of making my card a square, I chose to make it rectangular. It simply compliments the skinny house better than a square would have in my opinion.
My mother used to find four-leafed-clovers almost everywhere she went. She was drawn to them almost magnetically. So clover has always been something important in my life. Shamrocks, too, have a special meaning for houses. I know that I have been gifted a Shamrock as a house-warming gift because, apparently, it brings good luck to the house for as long as it lives. So far my Shamrock has been with me for more years than I can remember. That's the reason for the clover/shamrock that I've placed at the bottom right and top left of the card.
