Guess who is guest designer at Use it Tuesday this week?

     Yes, I AM!  I won the challenge last week and was asked to be guest designer this week.  What a great privilege and honor! The challenge at Use it Tuesday this week is to use a never inked stamp and embellish with flowers.

     I decided to use a stamp set that i've had awhile and not used from Flower soft called "Country Window." I went around the web looking for examples of cards made with this stamp set and didn't find many really. The ones that i did find were made looking from the outside in, so i decided to do the opposite and make it an inside out card. I colored my flowers with my Copic markers and added a little "spring" flowersoft to the center flower. I added a strip of of lace to look like curtains. The flowers that i used are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Joanns. I made 2 yellow bows out of yellow ribbon from offray to add to the centers of the flower arrangement. The sentiment i found online while looking for a good "window" quote. I also added a few "branches" that i punched out with my Martha Stewart punch. It is really hard to tell by the picture, but i also added a piece of Acetate to make the window look real.

This card is also good for these challenges:
