Shaped Window

Playing along with challenges means that sometimes you get encouraged to try something new.  Well this card is a new venture, trying to make an aperture card to create a window.  I really like this nestie shape (you may have noticed if you're a regular visitor), and so I wanted to incorporate it into my design.

Once I'd got the image and window lined up, and used my patterned papers, there was not much space left for embellies, so I added lots of flowers, seam binding and the obligatory pearls (cos I just love 'em)!

I did emboss around the aperture, but I'm not sure it shows much in the photo.  I also distressed the outside edges of all my panels with ink, but otherwise, it is fairly plain (for me!)

This card will be available to buy on my eBay listings
