Pilin' on the Homes

The theme this week at Pile It On is Houses/Home. We're sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs, a company/artist I've admired for a long time. I combined her "From the Rooftops" and "My Neighborhood" digi stamps to create this scene.
I also incorporated a lovely digital sentiment by Ginny H which was offered at Aud Sentiments.

I printed the images and sentiment on white paper. I colored the houses with Copics; I was inspired by the colors of houses in my neighborhood. I popped up the piece with foam tape. The crocheted flower and button brad are from my stash. The button was originally purple, so I heat-embossed it in red. The leaves are cut with a Sweet Stamps die.

The patterned papers are from my stash; I've been saving this lovely blue piece for just-the-right project. I notched the outer corners with my favorite Marvy punch, so you can see just a bit of the yellow card base.
