Heart 2 Heart Challenge, week 17

I'm finely back to crafting after several weeks of moving.  Not being able to craft is like having an itch I can't scratch.  We've gotten all moved in and everything is unpacked.  We don't have internet at the house yet, but I am able to borrow internet on the weekend. 
This week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge is a color challenge.  It was pretty difficult for me as I don't use the colors very often in general so it was tricky to get them all together. 
This week we had to use Vineyard Berry, Blush and Creme Brulee.  Here is what I came up with:
I get to make quite a few more of these in order to send them out to close friends and family who will need our new address.  It turned out fairly well considering how much trouble I was having with these colors.  I used the flower from Extreme Happiness as well as the word Paradise. 
I am a big fan of having layers.  This card has lots of layers.  The pattern is from our Wishes book and is called File Pocket.  The little folder opens up to show our new address. 

I think that I will include a picture of the kids in front of our new house or something.  I haven't decided what to include in the card.  I could just include a picture of the incredible view from our new house.  We hope that we get to rent the house for the entire time we are here.  I don't think that I could complain at all if I get to wake up to this view for the next three years.

Be back soon!

I promise that I'll be back soon.  We've rented a house, but we can't move in until the 17th of July.  Our stuff will be delivered on the 19th of July and I'll finally be able to scrapbook again!  I can't even explain how hard it is not to be scrapbooking or cardmaking for so many weeks in a row.
I'm taking lots of pictures so I will be able to do lots of scrapbooking once my stuff gets delivered.  I'll be back soon!
