Happily Ever After


Another combo sketch today!  This card uses the colours from The Colour Throwdown and the sketch from Lily Pad Cards. Also, it's the first time these two stamps have seen ink so that makes it eligible for Use It Tuesday's challenge to use a previously uninked stamp.  Nothing too wild and crazy going on here but I think it may be my first window card - or at least, the first one in a really long time.  Must check out the archives...    
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Pacific Point, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black) Stampin' Up, (White) Bazzill
Stamps:  (Image & sentiment from July 2010 KOM - Happily Ever After) Unity Stamp Co
Ink:  ( VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Gems:  Craft Supplies for Less
Die:  (Nestabilities Standard Circles Large) Spellbinders
Punch:  (2" circle) Marvy Uchida

I love a good window card. Love the bird/text stamp...it looks so good framed like that! BTW, are you in natural light (not you at this second, you taking the pic)? The black and kraft (two colors I struggle to photo) look really good.

What a sweet card! Brilliant to make the circle into a window... I may have to steal, er, be inspired by that idea. :P Perfect use of the challenge colours, too.
