Sweet Stampin - Through the Window



 
Good Morning :)  I hope everyone has some fabby crafting time planned for the weekend.
 
Now todays new challenge over at Sweet Stampin is 'Through the Window', and this can be interpreted in so many ways - not just a window image, but apertures, or acetate would be great too !
 
We are sponsored this week by Sew Sweet who have a great prize on offer, and also our regular monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen.
 
I felt the need to step up my xmas card making, as I seem to have fallen behind this year and only have about 4 - lol :)  I used blue and white Bazzil cardstock, MME paper and the dies are mostly Marianne D.  I made the tiny poinsetta type flowers using the snowflake plate from Cheery Lynn (there are some really teeny tiny ones on that) and the fence is spellbinders.  The fab sentiment is from Digital Downloads .
 
I am entering this card in the below competitions:
 
Just Magnolia - Anything Goes with fabric
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Distressing
Crafts & Me - My sentiments exactly
Divas By Design - Texture
Simon Says Stamp - Glimmer & Sparkle
 
 
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and have a smashing weekend !

Those splashes of red really make this eye-catching & I love the soft colours elsewhere enhanced by the muslin which has the appearance of being curtains around the window. The kraft coloured twine is lovely on the sentiment.
