My card has a window through it, and the sentiment was stamped with Latte chalk ink on the inside of the card to show through the opening. I used a Spellbinders Labels One die to make the window and to mask the inside and add some distress ink around the edge. The flowers are embossed in white and painted with water colors; the pink flower is popped up for some dimension. The background stripes were stamped with Poppy chalk ink onto a Poppy note card; the leaves are made from a Nellie Snellen branch punch.
Here is a view from the side to better illustrate the window:
Congratulations to the winners of the first challenge...there were some amazing entries!
We are done with our spring break and the kids are back to school now...I go back to work tomorrow. (Sigh.) We had a wonderful Holy Week and Easter, spent lots of time with family, and then mid-week we enjoyed a three-day trip to Washington D.C. and Mt. Vernon in Virginia. Here are a few pics from our trip, including Arlington National Cemetery, the Capitol building, and a beautiful view from the breezeway of Mt. Vernon (the home of George Washington):
