Another New Home Card

I laughed when I saw the challenge at Less Is More this week because I knew I would end up using the same image as I used last week! It's 'one layer week' which I am starting to enjoy more and more and the theme is 'houses'. Again I used a delightful image from Digistamp Boutique's New Home Collection, this time using the row of houses rather than an individual image.




So what colours to use? This week's ColorQ challenge has a lovely muted autumnal palette...




I just love the cherry colour - it really makes the image pop from the white card but I'm glad I just used it for accents as I think a red house might have been too much! I have had trouble before with bleeding using this colour so I used 300gsm card so the promarkers didn't bleed through to the inside. 

And back to the Christmas cards...
