Inspired by Sian

I just loved this months theme, to be inspired by one of my amazing team mates. I had a hard time deciding on what to do but that is ok since I got to visit all of their blogs and also browse back here in the WOW! blog and finally I found this card by Sian that I think is so clever and pretty!

I loved the windows that shows the pretty stamp and that it's really a clean design. It's just a great card!

I sort of copied it, but I just made two windows and used one of the new stamps that I love! I spent a good amount of time coloring the whole background even though a lot is covered up. It was just so much fun to color all of those flowers.

I made it into a birthday card, since it is my birthday today :) It's really a shame that it's so hard to capture glitter on picture. I stamped the sentiment with black ink and embossed it with some clear hologram glitter to make it sparkle in the light. It's really pretty! I wish I had thought of it earlier, then I would have embossed the flowers too with the same glitter. Maybe next time. I think the windows are such a great way to show off pretty background stamps, I will definitely use this design more times.

  1. This is stunning! And I'm not going to lie, I'm really surprised and super flattered that you chose one of my cards as inspiration :) you've absolutely put mine to shame though!! The colouring itself is gorgeous, but up against the white stitched window it looks fabulous :)

    PS Happy Birthday!! :)

    1. Thank you <3 I really loved your card, thanks for the inspiration! I'll be re-using the idea more than once :)
