Anything Goes at ATSM

Evening all.
I'm back with a card for the latest challenge over at ATSM.
This week its -


Absolutely anything at all, let your hair down, try something different or not, just as the fancy takes you.
Here is my card.

My son's best friend has just got himself a new house with his girlfriend, so I thought I would make a card for Ben and Holly to celebrate. Using the sketch from this week's LIM challenge and the picture at Time Out as inspiration this is how I went about it.
On some scrap white card I stamped the cluster of houses from STAMPlorations and coloured them with Copics before fussy cutting them out. Placing them on a circle of card to match the base I thought they needed grounding so added some sky and ground before attaching the circle over a die cut lattice panel and stamping the greeting.
For more inspiration , check out the rest of the team here.

I'd like to join in over at-
