That's the way the money goes...

The theme for this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "anything goes".  I've had this MDF house moneybox for a few weeks now and thought this was the perfect piece to make for this challenge.

I covered the box in papers from the Kraft Resist and Crowded Attic collections by Tim Holtz, and then stained them with Antique Linen and Forest Moss Distress stains.  Panels from other Tim Holtz card stacks were placed in bookplates and memory frames and used to embellish the front of the house.  I rounded the whole thing off with a plaquette number and a word key!

Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)
