Holiday Home meets Life in the Forest: Fall Conference Card Contest Entry

Hello there, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to get to attend Stampin' Up!s Fall Conference that they held in Kitchener. It was a great event filled with both fun and learning. Attendees had the opportunity to design a card for the Ronald McDonald Children's Charity. They made a contest out of it - the criteria was that it had to be cheerful, suitable for children and contain NO words or sentiments. The last part is what I had the most trouble with. But I just got the Holiday Home stamp set and opened it right up to play and here's what I came up with. Sadly, I did not win - but I love how my card turned out. 
I chose some bright colours to start off. I used Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Sky cardstock colours. I used a lot of colouring on this baby. From all of the houses, the tree and the cute little critters from Life in the Forest. It's been a while since I played with that set - I remembered how much I love it. It's hard to resist those adorable forest critters faces. Except the background was sponged, and grass was a torn piece of Old Olive Cardstock.
I hope you like it, and that the person who gets my card likes it too!
Have a super day :)
