Fall With a View

It's time for another Dreamy Challenge! This month's challenge was to make a Fall card and to use a window somehow in your card. It could be a stamped window, a punched window. . .any kind of window. I had to use my newly acquired Nestabilities Labels One for my window. I layered the window using River Rock cardstock and Apple Cider Designer Series paper. I colored the flower stamp with markers, spritzed it with water and stamped it on the inside of the card. I stamped the greeting from Expressions by Inkadinkado over the flower. For finishing touches, I tied organdy ribbon around the right side of the frame and added a scalloped border along the bottom. You can see what the rest of the Dream Team came up with for this challenge:








You can participate too! Just make a Fall card with a window and link it to the comments section of Michelle's blog, and if you upload to Splitcoaststampers , just use keyword SDDC2. To make this challenge even sweeter, Michelle has some awesome Dream Treats which she will be giving to a winner chosen at random. Good luck and we can't wait to see your Fall With a View creations! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Coneflower (Paper Inspirations), Expressions (Inkadinkado); Paper- Apple Cider DS, River Rock (SU), olive (Paper Company); Ink- Burnt Umber (Palette); Accessories- Really Rust, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip markers (SU); Martha Stewart border punch, Nestabilities Labels One (Spellbinders), rust organdy ribbon (Darice); Finished card measures 4.25" square
