I'm really missing Margaret right now.  We need some face time, and not the Apple iPhone kind!  
So tonight I have a card to celebrate our friendship.

I used the sketch at Digi Sketch Challenge.  The heart image is from Lockhart Stamp Company, colored with Copics and Spicas.  The window, also colored with Copics, is an Art Impressions stamp, and I used a Spellbinders die to cut out the center where the glass would be.  I added foam tape to the back side and mounted the heart image so it would give it some depth.  I fussy cut the awning, also attaching it with foam tape.  The dp is Basic Grey Lemonade and cs is from my stash, as is the strip of ribbon.  I used EK punches for the sentiment, stamped with Versafine Onyx Black, produced by JustRite.  I added 3 Swarovskis beneath it for a little added emphasis on the word "special".  Makes me want to jump in the car and run to a bakery for a latte and a cookie or cupcake, how about you?

I love how Margaret shows detail photos, so here's my attempt at it.  The main photo just doesn't show the triple depth of the window, so I will try to show it here:

I am also entering the following challenges:

A Creative Romance - dies or punches
Cut it Up - circles, must use a die cut
GraphIt Markers - color an accessory

Thanks for stopping by!
