Addicted to stamps - Lots of layers

Hi guys... I am back with a quick card my friends asked me to make for her, to give to her folks for their new home.... 
I knew I wanted to create this scene, using Magnolia stamps.. I have had the house one for ages.. and I love to use it for this type of card.. It also comes in handy at Xmas for a "First Xmas in your new home " card......
anyway, this is what I made her.... 

the stamp is a trio of houses, but I used just one and 3d'd it onto the background... I cut this out with my circle die, after colouring it with my Spectrums..... 
the papers are Carina Gardner "Sproutlets" digi papers from you know! I think the circle is a stately circle die from Spellbinders, the flowers are from stash, I love the two flourishes at the ends of the arrangement.. they are from my Joy! ovals die.

The font is cute isn't it? its a childs handwriting one... I think I will be adding lots more fonts to my pc.. there are some fabby ones out there.... 
Now, I will be sharing the colour combo for this over on the Spectrum Noir blog... for my colours check it all out there... 
anyway, have a fab Monday.. its my daughters driving test today... I will have everything crossed for her.... 
I would just like to enter this in...
