Windows.....

There is another new challenge blog out in blogland that celebrates all things Hero Arts.... it's called "A Blog Named Hero".  Their latest challenge is " Cards with a View".
  I LOVE Hero Arts products and have quite a few of their stamps and love the quality.  So I just had to create a card for this challenge.

Window Card

I started my window panel by stamping my sentiment ( from Stamp-It) and then cutting out the window.  I then embossed the panel with Swiss Dots.  I then stamped on the cut out piece.   I started with Silhouette Grass inked up with Shabby Shutters and Rusty Hinge.  Over this I stamped one of the flowers from Real Garden Flowers inked up with Mustard Seed and a dark green Tombow marker.  The little red butterflies are from Antique Engravings set.   The window panel is raised on pop dots for some dimension.

I am also entering this into Die Cut Diva's monthly challenge ~ Embossing
and Lily Pad Cards ~ Flower Challenge

Glad that first week back at work is over.  It's been LOOONG.  Hoping to get some time in the craft room over the weekend.  I want to redo some of the tags  I made for Tim's Creative Chemistry classes now I have his Tag Die ~ it makes nice big tags and I only used little tags.

Hope your weekend is full of fun.
