Hmmm...Not Quite What I Pictured

I know this has happened to you. You have a great idea in your head about what a card is going to look like. You work hard, put all the pieces together and in the end, it doesn't quite look as good as you pictured it in your mind. That's what happened with this card. It looked really good in my mind! Don't get me wrong, I like this card, it's just not quite what I thought it would be. This is a recessed window card and there is transparency over the window. The snowflakes are stamped on the transparency.

  10. Beautiful, Lori. It looks good enough to eat. I just got back from Bruster's ice cream place. Otherwise, I might still be hungry for ice cream.

  26. Oh hunny you are so not alone, I had to make a card tonight for Mam and I just couldn't get it to work, so have abandoned until the morning. I do however think this is stunning! Great idea with the recessed window, have only tried this once must attempt again. Thanks for playing at SSW this week!
