This is an entry I made for a color blog challenge from Color My Heart

Using the Cricut Artiste cartridge, I cut out the Milk Carton using Topiary Cardstock (Fit to Page).  Using Colonial White cardstock, I cut the roof at 3.25 by 6.25.  Using a wood grain embossing folder, I used New England Ivy pigment ink and inked the embossing folder before embossing.  I then selected hearts (standard and scalloped) from Artiste cartridge and sized to .50.  I colored hemp cord in New England Ivy and attached the Sweet Leaf stamped hearts to the hemp cord and added Artisan studs between each heart.  I attached the heart pendant with 2 mini clothes pins.    For the opening, I cut two oval shapes at 1.75" and 2".  Then I used hemp and glued around ovals.  I added a single heart with an Artisan stud.  I then used a swag wood decal for perch.  I cut a shape for the February Stamp of the Month (2.50 x 2.50).  I used gold embossing powder and heat embossed on pre-cut shape.
Your next stop on our "Home Sweet Home" hop is Ryan's Piece and Paper.
