Summertime House Pivot

Here's another card I made with Karen Burniston's new House Pivot die.  I doubled the house portion, just like I did with the vest card on my previous post.  I used Double Sided Adhesive Sheets  to make the Saffron Silk Microfine Glitter stick to my Whisper White.  I used the Pennant Punch to make the triangles for the tops of the castle.  The door is actually the door die that comes with the House Pivot set.  I embossed all the images with black embossing powder & then colored with Stampin' Write Markers.

I used Four Bows & Circle Accordion dies to cut the sun from Yellow Shimmer Sheetz.  I sponged the bottom area of the card with Crumb Cake & the top with Marina Mist.  I used the stamp that comes with your first Paper Pumpkin to get the sandy look on the bottom of the card.

"Life's a" is held on behind the sandcastle with a toothpick.

What a fun sandcastle!
If you have any questions on how I made this card, please ask me in comments - I read them all.
