A Two-fer

 If you've read my blog for any length of time you know how much I love to play along with online challenges.  I haven't had much time of late to participate, but found myself with time to play last weekend and decided to jump right back in!  Today's project was inspired by a couple of online challenges.  This week Hand Stamped Sentiments is running a colour challenge that uses a fab combo:

Over at Retro Sketches there is terrific sketch:

So I decided to combine the two and came up with this card:

CAS Love Note for HSS150 and RS45 featuring the Hearts A-Flutter stamp set and More Amore DSP with sentiment from P.S. I Love You (retired)

Inside view with another sentiment from P.S. I Love You
I decided to make the label shape in the background of the sketch a window and added my other elements so that they layered across the opening.  The DSP label on the inside peeks through the window at the front of the card.  I kept the design very CAS...nary an embellishment in sight (unless you count the strip of Pool Party seam binding ribbon I used as one of the banners), so I added a little texture with the Adorning Accents TIEF and a couple of lines done with my Simply Scored.  I played down the Basic Black element of the colour challenge, using it only for the stamped sentiments because I wanted the card to have a light and airy quality.
I have to apologize for the poor colour quality in these photos...I had hoped Santa would bring me a new camera and photo booth, but alas, I mustn't have been a very good girl this year...he didn't come through!!  Guess I'll have to clean up my act...or go shopping ;)


  1. Oh my gosh, love this window card! Love the layout, the banners, the hearts and the cute little greeting inside! I'm so glad you found some time to play with us at HSS!!! I hope you will join us next week for more fun!

  2. This card is FABULOUS! I love the window and the repetition of a banner on the inside--so smart :0) I am so glad you joined our color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Smiles, Elizabeth

  3. What an adorable card! I love the simplicity of it.

    Thanks for playing with us this week at HSS!


  4. WOW! I love this card. Simple yet stunning with that window. Thanks for playing with HSS.
