TGIF306 Welcoming Window

 Hi peeps!  A quick post today as I have stampers coming to play!  YAY!  The color challenge at TGIF beckoned me to play along, especially since purple and yellow are probably my least utilized colors!  

So I struggled through and here's my card:

There are so many fun little pieces in this bundle, I really enjoyed playing with it!  In hindsight, I wish I had assembled this a wee bit differently, but we learn by doing!  I love the texture on the shutters and how pretty the two-step flowers turn out!  I used a piece of True Love DSP on which to stamp my window, and stamped a sentiment from Hot Dog to attach at the bottom.  It's hard to see, but the Whisper White panel is embossed with the Subtle EF too!

To make another sample for my stamp club girls, I did this one as well, using Mint Macaron, Misty Moonlight and Gray Granite as my colors:

I used a piece of Butterfly Bijou as a background for my window; but then I thought, well, if this is a scene of an outside wall looking in, I probably shouldn't have something that looks like a sky, right?  Oh well!  Another lesson learned!  We should have a curtain stamp, right?  I LOVE this color combination for the florals too!  

And I thought created the background would be time-consuming, but it went together in a flash!  Thanks for popping in today for a visit!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Just a note; I had a reader ask a question about something yesterday, but she commented as "anonymous" with no email address, so I could not answer her question! If you choose to do that, it's fine, but send me an email (my address is on the right sidebar) if you have a question; I hate to have someone feel like I am ignoring them!  Thanks!

You really know how to make a beautiful scene! For me? that minty color would make a wonderful inside-wall paint color, LeAnne! I LOVE that brick wall - paper, or stamp?

Gorgeous - I love the bright colours on the first one, I started a card with these earlier too!

Two lovely scenes, LeAnne! I like the blues and grays on the second one!
