Challenge #163 - "Anything but a Card" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Crafters, well we have something different for you over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot so I do hope you are ready for a Challenge, my A Team have been extremely inventive and I hope to see other peoples projects to as this theme is all about "Anything but a Card".
But Im getting ahead of myself you will want to know as always that Veronica and Pedro are sponsoring us and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend on their website

http://www.thepapershelter.com/

But as always you must have used one of their products on your card and this could be either a Image, Printable or Papers and believe me when I say they have a fabulous library of stunning designs and images for you to play with. Your will find their website The Paper Shelter here, but even if you havent used one of their products you will still receive 3 digi images if you are the lucky one picked by random org.
Anyway I created this Savings Box house for my hubbys granddaughter,

I actually bought this savings box house from the NEC last time I went to the Craft Show in March and decided this was the ideal project for this theme, I have used one of the papers from "Zoes Spring Paper" set and you will find them here,  to cover the house and then used a fence, windows and door are dies from Memory Box and stuck it along the front of my box.
The image is The Paper Shelters "Home Sweet Home" image and you will find it here, that I have coloured then cut out completely and stuck to the front of the house, the flowers are also from the same image as is the Home Sweet Home banner thats been stuck across the top of the door frame.
Now that youve seen my project I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will take part in this weeks "Anything but a Card" Challenge.
