View from Mother's Window



The limited supplies challenge on Split Coast was to create a border with stamps - bonus points for using flowers! So I stamped some single blooms right onto the designer paper along the bottom of my card. I used Taylored Expressions Sketch and her stamp set Fresh Flowers for my card. I just love this set that also has a shutter and window box to use with the window as well as lots of flowers, vases and sentiments.

I cut open one half of the window and then colored the inside piece to look like the stamped window. I don't know if you can tell from the picture - but there is a branch with a pink bird sitting on it on the DP showing through the window. I was going for the 'looking into the back yard' idea with this!

I colored the window with copics and attached it to the card with foam dimensionals. I stamped the single flowers directly on the designer paper along the bottom for a garden effect. I added some tiny bling to them, then attached the sentiment and flowers to the window with foam dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a super weekend!
