Recessed Window

Hello Again!  This card, which I just had to share, is my 1600th card loaded on to My Gallery At Stamp TV.  WHAHOO!!!  For those of you about to ask, yeah I do not have a life!  lol  I just love to make cards.  And one of the great things about my little obsession is, I SEND 90% of them out too!  Yay me!  I love mail, I love getting mail, I love sending mail and I hope all that receive my cards love getting them too!  Okay enough blowing my own horn!

This card was made for the October Release Party Challenge at Stamp TV, to make a Recessed Card.  I will also be entering it into the Simon Says Monday Challenge, Anything Goes.

I was on Pinterest yesterday and saw this Gorgeous card, thought I would use it as inspiration, clicked on it and arrived at the Blog for instructions.  I was surprised when I recognized the author, Theresa Momber.  You will find her beautiful card there and her easy to use instructions!  That post was from 2009, and it's still valuable today, 5 years later.   WOW!!!

Here is my creation: 
I used the Gina K Designs stamp sets Stamper's Favorites, Take Flight, Tropical Leaves.  I really like this recessed window design, I think I have made one before, it has so much depth.   Adhesive Rhinestones and Stickles on leaves and butterfly make this card shimmer and shine! 
Using Distress inks in Antique Linen and Peeled Paint I stamped tropical leaves on the insert.

Sentiment stamped on a little flag banner, rhinestone accent.  Top leaves are a Sizzix Die.

 The butterfly is on 2 layers of chipboard, which I stamped and fussy cut out.  The leaves are also cut out.  All colored with Copic Markers.

The Blog instructions also have a link to the VIDEO at SplitCoastStampers......check it out!

Thanks so much for joining me this busy Monday!  I have to go grocery shopping but you know I will be hitting the craft room afterwards!
