Karen Burniston Designer Challenge - Home for the Holidays

It's time for Karen Burniston's Desginer Challenge!  This month, the team was challenged to make some sort of home on our holiday cards.  I used Merry & Bright stamp set along with the stitched oval die from Oval Accordion Card on the front.  To accent the sentiment, I used Stampin' Write Markers to color in some areas.
I decided I wanted to make a cozy home for Jolly the Mouse.  I followed Karen's video on how to make a floating floor for the Barn Pop Stand. Jolly decided to add some lights around his door  - I die cut the lights from Holiday House using white card stock then used Stampin' Write Markers & a Silver Metallic marker to color in the lights.  Since I have a floating floor, I was able to add the candy canes as a nice path leading up to his home.
Jolly is holding his letter to Santa, I sure hope it makes it to the North Pole in time.
Here's the back view.  I stamped some more sentiments from the Merry & Bright stamp set onto the barn and added some presents from the Sleigh Gift Card.
Here's a view of the floating floor - this technique really adds lots of decorating possibilities!  
Happy Stampin',
