Building stamps are very popular right now.  I love them too!  I like that they are versatile.  By changing the combination of stamps and colors you have an unlimited number of images!  The February Stamp of the Month at Close to My Heart is a building stamp and I am having quite a lot of fun with it!  I tried different color combinations and stamped an entire background:

I've used the newer colors from the Close to My Heart palette - Pixie, Canary and Glacier.  I was very happy with my one-of-a-kind patterned paper but I'll tell you honestly I was stuck after that because I couldn't decide how i wanted to put it on a card.  LOL.

I knew I should use a big portion of it because the size of the pattern is rather large.  Then I decided to cut 1/2" strip off, attached it to Whisper (grey) cardstock as the card front.  I added butterflies from Art Philosophy cartridge and the sentiment from Artiste cartridge to finish it off.

My card is entering the following:
Party Time Tuesdays - Anything Goes
Cuttin and Stampin - Anything Goes
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Retarte - Something New Something Old
Tuesday Throwdown - Anything Goes
