CMCC#32! I'm Here For You


I created this card for the CMCC#32! challenge. I interpreted it quite literally as the windows immediately put me in mind of my Memory Box Madison Window and Shutter dies.  I sponged a little Memento London Fog ink on watercolor paper and spritzed it with water to give the effect of the stucco on the house. The curtains are made from patterned vellum that I had saved from an invitation, punched with an SU punch and layered behind the window. The branch is cut from the Memory Box Grove Branch die.  It needed a little sparkle, so I added a little green bling to perk it up.  The sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays Calm and Gentle. This is a departure from my usual style, but I like it. Thanks CMCC team for the inspiration and thanks for stopping by.

Fantastic card. You have created such a fabulous scene, and it is only upon further looking at the challenge did it occur to me that green was the only color. What a great card to send to a friend who to let them know you are here for them.
