A window of hope for Whimsy Stamps Challenge

Hello and a happy wednesday to you all! 

I made today's card for Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Challenge. The theme for this month is simply "anything goes". There are still a couple of weeks left to play along for a chance at one of the fabulous prizes up for grabs.

Today is also the new May Rubber Stamps and Die release, and some of the DT girls are holding a blog hop today, and there is another chance to win!

For my card today I used one of the brand new stamp sets by Whimsy's Illustrator Monika Martinson. I just fell in love with this set, and had to have it. The set is called "Window of Hope".

To make my card I stamped the iamge onto white card stock (neenah), and after coloring  I cut it out. I stamped it a second time and this time I just cut out a couple of flowers and popped them up with dimensionals. 

The paper is from Prima marketing. I kept it pretty simple, just used the Whimsy Stamps lace doily  border 1 die on the right side, and a little bit of ribbon plus glitter.

I also added some glassy glaze to the window, you ca see it better in this photo.

I hope you liked today's card. If you have time then go check out the challenge blog for more of this month's rubber stamp release creation, and then if you have time why not hop along in today's release hop? 

I am playing along in a couple of challenges too:

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoy your day!

Hi Ellie,

This is a little bit different for you and very nice indeed.

And probably comes as no surprise that I really love the stamp and the whole feel of your card. And great idea adding the glossy accents to the window.
