ABC - DT W is for Windows - My sisters birthday card!

Yes it is a different angle to the one on ABC as I thought I would try again in the slightly better light today (it has stopped raining ofr 5 minutes!) The image is WOJ pregnant Willow and I have used it to make my sisters birthday card as she is 28 weeks pregnant. She and her husband don't know what they are having so I have made the card in yellow. I have coloured using distressed inks and mounted her on a window cut using my nesties. I then cut a thin border to frame the window on the front and inside - this was so fiddly! I only used one sheet on each side of this gorgeous paper from K and Co as it was so pretty and elaborate I did not feel the need to layer it. The flowers are prima and when glimmer misted the green die ran slightly to give this gorgeous effect.

Do look at all the other design team cards and welcome our new design team member Dawn.

We are getting better on the spot front now and hope to be back blogging fully soon. Thank you so much for bearing with me and apologises for not commenting on all the ABC entries last week.
