Housewarming - Day 21

I'm back again.  I hope that we continue to meet like this.  I am getting myself back on track and trying to post the cards that I have finished for my October Challenge.   I tried to stick to my word and take a break from Birthday and Wedding.  Day 22 is going to be Birthday and then you are going to see some CHRISTMAS starting.  I will also fill you all in on my big news within the next couple days - I promise that you aren't going to want to miss it!

As for todays card I'm going to share something with you that I haven't shared on here ever I don't think.  I spent time looking for pattern paper with keys, as I could have sworn that I had one, but couldn't seem to find it.  I then remembered that I had a really cool stamp that I could use for a pretty cool background.  I absolutely love how this card turned out.  It is simple, classic and very flat.  Usually I go for something with layers, and with different levels of dimensions, but I stepped outside the box and love the end result.

I also used a sticker for this card, because it was perfect for the look I was going for.  

I hope that you enjoy this card!
