Autumn at Home

This card was inspired by
the picture posted below at Stampin' Royalty for their challenge #196.  Bitten by the Bug had Fall Leaves as their theme this week so my little wreath on the door should be at home both places!

My card base is Barn Red from CTMH and the door is cut from the Dream Pop paper.  The leaves were cut from CTMH Artiste, Art Philosophy, and Artbooking.  The door hinges were cut from Spring Seasonal.

I used Brown Sparkles from the CTMH Huntington Workshop on the Go pack for the doorknob and the hinge nails/screws.  Family was stamped in Barn Red using the CTMH You Are My Happy alphabet.

I made this card for a very special family who is in the process of adopting some beautiful children from the foster system.  The kids have been with them for a year now and they are a lovely family!  I can't wait until it's all final and I can make the "kid shower" invitations!

All CTMH papers and goodies can be found at KatiesCorner!

This is the picture from Stampin' Royalty that inspired the card.  Very pretty fireplace and mantle!
