Look through the window...

Happy Friday!

The newest stamp tutorial on Gina K's StampTV is called "Faux Window". I loved how Gina's card turned out and wanted to give it a try.

The image I used is "A christmas snowman" from the Digital Stamp Oasis. (Don't forget the buy 3 get 2 free sale!)






I added some shimmery lace,that I found at a flea market, to frame the window. My designer paper is from Basic Grey, card stock is white and chocolate chip from stampin Up.

I embellished with some punched out flowers using SU's boho blossom punch and spring bouquet punch, and added silver brads as flower centers. I really wanted gold brads and since I am out of them, I just applied gold stickles to them. To finish the card off I added frosted lace stickles for the now, and more gold stickles ot the star and garland on the christmas tree. The sentiment is from Stampin Up's set "warm wisches, ribbon is retired cranberry crisp, also stampin up.

This card also fits the challenge over at Dare you to digistamp, which is "glitter" and
the basic grey challenge which is "Glitz and bling".

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you're having a fantastic weekend!
