Dublin Door revisited

Years ago, I made this card, and I was so proud of how it turned out.  I held on to the card for a long time, knowing eventually it would go to the just the right person, for the right occasion.  This did make its way to that special person earlier this year.  

I had been inspired by the famous doors of Dublin, Ireland.  This one is of course not brightly colored, as so many of theirs are.  As a side note, I sure am glad my husband and I got to visit Ireland in 2019, before the craziness of 2020 ensured.

The awning stands away from the card, best seen in the photo below.  The 'brass' doorknob is a brad, and the door was constructed from two different shades of gray cardstock.  I added little lines with a marker at each corner.

I even created a sidewalk for the potted topiaries (Flourishes DIY Topiaries) to stand upon.  I used Stampin' Up! Itty Bitty Backgrounds to get the mottled concrete look, then drew the slab lines with a marker.

Proverbs 14:1
The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.

Thanks for taking a walk down memory lane with me today. 😀

Memory Lane can be such a beautiful place, especially when lined with doorways such as this. A very imaginative and pretty card, Colleen!
