Make It Monday #299 - Sentiment Windows

Hello friends.  Playing along with this weeks Make It Monday challenge where Dawn McVey shows us how to make a beautiful card using a die cut window to frame our sentiments.  I made a very simple card but absolutely LOVE how it turned out!

 
I started with a white card base and a piece of Pure Poppy Bitty Big DSP, and then cut my window opening with a rectangle die.  I stamped my sentiment next from O Holy Night and then finally got out my Beautiful Berries: Winter and had fun stamping the 3 different size sprigs with Olive Twist, Pure Poppy, & Scarlet Jewel inks.  After placing the sprigs on my card, I still felt like it needed something, so I added a bird from the Winter Woods set and it totally finished off the card IMHO!


This whole card just feels so bright and cheery and I love how well the Bitty Big DSP and the sprigs and bird go together!  I might have to make a few more cards similar to this.  Thank you Dawn...a GREAT challenge!!

There's still time to play and you can check out Dawn's lovely card and video right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
