Dare to Dream

Hello Again,

For today I am writing for Make My Monday to say there is a new challenge this week! Before we get to the challenge here is my card, enjoy!

Using the window for a dreamy sky scene.
Colorful sequins from Winnie & Walter are just dazzling.
This weeks challenge:
Through the Window
The colors that were used are pastel and white.
Perfect for a congratulatory card.
A rhinestone was placed on the butterfly to visually connect with the
sparkly sequins inside the window.
Card in the direct light showing again the
shine and sparkle of the card.
Through the window can be looked at so many ways. It could mean the window of the heart, spirit, or maybe a broken window, or literally looking through a window. I decided to use my window for a dreamy shaker card. I am not really a pastel girl but thanks to these challenges it got me out of my comfort zone. And wow I love it!

Very pretty Shawna! I love that you incorporated lots of texture with your white butterflies to add interest without detracting from the fabulous shaker window. Thanks for joining my CAS 'Up, Up and Away' challenge over at The Paper Players this week!

I love how the window sits on top of the background and the dimension it gives the card. I love the impact the white has against the background and the white butterflies are a nice touch. Thanks for playing along with us at AAA Cards!
