Leave the lights on.

I tend to come unstuck when I try and make an 'artsy' card. 
What I see in my head never really equates to the card I make.
But, that's the style my dd likes, so I thought I would give it a go for her 'new home' card.


I used my new Memory Box landscape die to create a little scene. 
I put some orange paper behind the windows,
so that it would look like lights were on ;-)
and added some gems to the DP at the bottom.

For the moon, a circle die cut was covered with glamour dust (IRL it's very sparkly) and then the sentiment was added to one of the clouds - all popped up on foam pads.

 Challenges.

Supplies
Memory Box dies - country landscape and clouds.
DP - Prima, Moulin Rouge
Gems, Glamour Dust
