Window Box

Hello my classy friends, Diane here with you today
with my card for our "Heart and Home" challenge.


Using the photo above for inspiration, I stamped a brick background  
using one of the many background stamps Beverly carries.


Using the PoppyStamps Small Madison Window die I added "wallpaper" and a little "valance"
cut from from KaiserCraft "On This Day 6 x 6 paper pad

The shutters are PoppyStamps Small Madison Shutter die, 
cut from a piece of black metallic paper from the Classy Fall Card Stock Bundle   
I love how the shutters have a pretty, shimmery look!


then with little Roses cut from Impression Obsession Spiral Flowers
The tiny hearts are from a small heart punch.

Lovely Diane! I never even thought about using my window dies for this challenge. It's perfect! I like how you added the hearts too!

I sure do like your window! I have yet to purchase any of the window dies, they are all so lovely I can't decide which I like best. The brick wall around it adds so much great texture. Simply lovely my friend!

I just purchased a window die set, with shutters and a window box. Been scratching my head on what I might do with it, and figuring it will just come to me eventually. Well, you can guess I'm pretty happy to see this darling card for inspiration! Dang, I saw that grass die and almost bought it, too. Now, I'm wishing... There's always going to be more, right? Love the little flowers you put in the window box, and the hearts on the shutters. So cute!
