For a moment..

I thought blogger wasn't going to work again. Thankfully it is because I have two posts to do tonight!! The other post is for PCJ Challenge 10 so I will post that tomorrow but for now I wanted to share the card that I made last night!! That picture I had in my head of the card I wanted to make turned out perfectly!!!
Awhile ago I was down at Sam's ( Sew Many Craft's So little Time) and I stamped out a heap of her Magnolia images (her addiction - LOL)  As soon as I saw the window stamp I knew exactly what card I wanted to use it on - a recessed window card!!! So last night I went and found the tutorial on SCS and began to create!!!
And here is how it turned out!!!

Slight angle so you can see the depth of the card
Close up of the window

Isn't it awesome??? I coloured the images in with  Tria Markers( O225, R555, C119, G278, G724, R247, O729, BL) and Copics ( B95, E31, R24, E57, E02) and to add some sparkle I used the clear spica pen on the flowers.I also used some chalk on the white card stock to "dirty' it up a little. I added the red crystals which I got from magnolia at Christmas time and have never used and the large red flower was a prize and the smaller one's were white and pink but I wanted them to be red so I sprayed red smooch spritz all over them!! I wasn't sure if I needed to add more to this card or not but I think it looks perfect the way it is!!!
