March Colours

Hello everyone! I'm very exciting today! It was my turn to set up a new dare at Daring Cardmakers. You don't know, but this is my little celebration too. This week has been 3 years since they took me under wings and I am so proud of it.  Dear Daring Cardmakers thank you for having me! I love you very much! You will always be my favourite! 
Now... as it is a first Friday of the month it is time for Colour Challenge! So this is what I came up to :
Use colour palette from my inspirational image :

My card :

and here is my tutorial how to create this card :

Cover the white card blank 12.8 x 17 cm with kraft cardstock paper.

Print out sentiment on white cardstock. I used fonts from www.dafont.com ( If you don't have a printer stamp some nice sentiment or rub on some transfer ).  Cut out frame 10 x 14.5cm  use Spellbinder Classic Rectangles Large for making the window. Ink the edges and stitch around.

Die cut grass from green patterned paper using Spellbinder Labels Ten and house from light blue cardstock using Memory Box Village House.

Cut out two panels. The pattern one 15.3 x 11.5cm for matting and the orange one 9 x 13.5cm for the house background.

Adhere the grass oval and frame on the orange background.

Fix the house, leave the door open for dimensional effect.

Wrap the twine around the frame.

Matt with patterned paper and affix on the card front. Add buttons and gem stone for the door knob to finish.

Have a beautiful afternoon! Sending blessings!
