Window Shopping

Hello how are you today? Brrr… it got very cold in Michigan… just when i was thinking “hmmm.. iam having enough of Christmas cards… i am ready for some Spring colors” quite funny that we card maker are so “off season” all the time :-)
For my card to day i used my last piece of a unknown snowflake paper that i really loved due to the soft vintage feel of it. I have tried to add my embellishments, so they will not cover too much off. Since there are not many layers on my card, i have spritzed the papers with Shimmerz Babies Breath, sewed the paper and pulled the Designer paper back and squeezed Stickles between the papers.
This cute image of In2Stamps lead to the idea to add behind the chipboard frame (K&Company) a acetate sheet to really give it the look of the kids staring though a window.
Window_Shopping 
Stamps: In2Stamps “Toy Store” can be purchased in Europe or over at 7kids College fund in the USA.
Embellishments: Stickles, Shimmerz, Prima Butterscotch Roses (all at 7kids), golden bow (Michaels)
Window_Shopping_1 Thank you for your visit today. Have lovely day.
Love Claudia

Such a lovely card with a beautiful scene. Reminds me of Christmases long ago when we were mere childrend and Mom used to take us shopping and we'd peek into the store windows to see the Christmas displays. You have done a beautiful job with this card (as always!). Cami
