For Anita's TLC796 Tent Card with a Twist challenge. I've got to admit that I always struggle with the perspective of cards with angled backs, but I had fun making this after I finished the housework this morning. I'm not sure if it should be "who let the dust bunnies in" rather than out, but it is what it is.
I used Anita's tutorial to create the card, with a woodgrain DP on the front and a green patterned one inside. I had to add several layers of the TH treeline to fill in the space, I wasn't sure how much of the background would show after assembling the card. At the base I used one of the Memory Box borders, cut from a scrap of DP but with colour added to the trees and the roof of the house.
For the in-between layer I used the IO grass border cut from Bazzill, and the Joy Craft mushroom border cut from watercolour paper and coloured with watercolours.
The dust bunnies and vacuum cleaner were stamped on white card, coloured and fussy cut. Most of the bunnies are out in the wild....
Computer-generated sentiment (Story Book font), and that's it.

That's a cute one Sabrina, I've never heard about dust bunnies, we call them often sheep here...I love all the inside die cuts and the pretty mushroom, I spot the little house and the trees and love the forest in the background!!
The most important with these kind of cards is that they fold flat and that you can create a real scene inside.

I admire your work ethic with housework. I have never developed that, probably because my mother didn't. i'm a better housekeeper than she was, but that isn't saying a lot. I'm sure with that cute vacuum, you can take care of those bunnies. I think your card is delightful. I hope I can do this.

I started giggling as soon as I saw your title. When I saw the card it became a full on laugh. The vacuum on the front and all those bunnies hiding out in the woods are hilarious! How do you come up with these ideas! Super Fun.
