Windows Challenge

Hello everyone

For today I am writing on behalf of House of Cards! As you may already know you have ALL MONTH to enter; which will also give you plenty of time to procrastinate (Like yours truly). Anyway enough excuses! Here is my inspiration card for House of Cards.

I do hope you join us before the end of the month because I am super excited to see how you interpret our challenge for the month of November.

Our challenge for November
Stamped and cut windows
Entering the following challenges:

The snowflake window becomes a focal point
for our scene on the inside of the card.
The entire image on the inside of the card. Colored using
PrismaColor pencils. This digi stamp was generously given to me
by my teammate Monika from Creative with Monika.
Thank you!

The sentiment is one stamp, I only inked the areas I needed for certain portions of the card. The 'Christmas Greetings' sentiment is from SU and am sorry to say it is retired.
The light pouring on the image through the snowflake window. 
I hope you will link up with us this month.. I think this challenge can be viewed in many different ways! I just may play along with all of you!! 

Well that is all for me this soggy Halloween night. Again, any comments that you may have are welcomed. Thank you for stopping by and we will see you all soon!

Haha...I hear ya on the procrastination! I always think I'll have the time to start working ahead, but it rarely works out that way! I really love how the window gives you a peek into the whole scene on the inside...very fun idea! Way to go with all that coloring too, that's the sort of thing that takes me hours to finish!
