♥ Cupcake Craft Challenge ~ Lots of layers ♥

Over at Cupcake craft challenge is "lots of layers" which fits my card :)
The base piece of paper is from Anna Griffin {I have had this in my stash.... forever!! }
Then I layered flower patterned paper from K & Co McKenna, then I layered with sticky 3d foam a tag, which I inked edges and added my new Papertrey die cut house from "Love lives Here" set {loooooove this set}, I added seam binding and a brass key tied on with jute string and stitched lace onto paper across bottom of card, then glued buttons .... Pheeeew!!! This did take me a while to make and I thoroughly enjoyed it :) The sentiment is stamped from the matching Papertrey "Love lives Here stamp set ♥♥♥

Happy Easter ♥♥
