Anyway, onto my card for today and today it's time for another new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. The theme for this week is
I took quite some time to do my card today but I wanted to use some new dies that I have purchased, so I needed lots of experimenting. Yes I was very naughty, and my urge to get me some new goodies took over. Well, what happened was that some time ago I had won a $15 voucher from Simon Says and seeing all the goodies, I just couldn't resist topping up the voucher with some more extra monies!!
So here I used two of them, the PoppyStamps Grand Madison Window die and the Leafy Branch from CC Designs. The flower border at the bottom is Memory Box, which I already had and the sweet bird and birdhouse die-cuts were in a die-cut swap from Chrissy. Thank you Chrissy :)
I popped up the window and the flower border and I also stamped the lovely LOTV stamp three times to pop it up as well. I coloured the image with my promarkers, the faux curtain inside the window is a Martha Stewart border punch, the little blue butterflies is an X-Cut punch and the DP is from a Boofle paper pad.
I really love how my card turned out today and can't believe I left this gorgeous stamp from LOTV waiting for me to use her for such a long time!
