On the Outside Looking In...

Yesterday's Challenge 135 at 365 Cards was "On the Outside Looking In". We were to create a window on our cards using something see-through.

I knew that I wanted to use this cute new set from The Angel Company that my friend Shirley ordered for me, and what a perfect stamp for a window theme!

I sponged the sky and grass, did a little stamping, a little coloring, and of course, a little bling! It doesn't show up on the photo, but I used the stardust pen on the water, and it looks like it's really wet! Cutting out the little girl was a bit tricky as her teensy little legs are SO skinny!
Let me know what you think!
Well, the All Star Game is over. It was a good ball game regardless of the outcome! Always fun to see the old timer's , and to see all of the current best of the best on the same field. And however you may feel about the President, it's always fun to see a U.S. President in our own home town, and he certainly was gracious and pleasant to all.

I'm off to blurf for a few minutes, and then try to get some zzzzzzzzz's. Hope your night is restful and that you have a great day tomorrow!

Great job, Patti... I love the colours you've chosen - and the stamp is adorable (I see what you mean, though, about those skinny little legs - I'll just bet the flower stem was fun, too!)

Amen on the sentiment of the day.

Great card, Patti! I love the way you positioned the gardener above, pouring water down on the flowers behind the acetate. You are so clever and creative!
