Through the window

Hello crafters!
                       The design has been in my head for a while and I held off making it until this week because it just so happens to fit in perfectly with most of the challenges. I wanted the card to look like a balcony and window with a flower bloom and a climber and added other elements for added dimension and interest.

                      My base is a texture cream colored CS. I made a brick wall texture by tearing out those brown pieces shown in the picture and distress ink it with Scattered Straw.

       I used a pink designer sheet from my stash and made a border using Jef border punch and curtains behind the window. Then I Used Prima Hello Pastel stamp set (new in my collection) for the background at the top using Versa green ink and promarkers. I used Jef Tile punch to make this window using white foam sheet. I added an awning to the window. I used Jef cutter trimmer to cut one end of the awning. I folded that into shape as shown in the picture.

      I again used this cute image bunny with a girl (spring pick from Whimsy stamp). She is so cute I love her!!! I coloured her with my promarkers and highlighted her with Sakura gel pen and also add few gems and pearls in her hair. Then I made a balcony using Jef border punch again and attached the balcony to the card base with mounting tape. I filled the balcony  edge with several kind of flowers using Jef punches, grass and a butterfly in the balcony. Then I fussy cut out the image so I could use it as an arrangement on the window sill shown in the picture. Here is a closer look:

    I recently won this climber with Thanks sentiment on a challenge sponsored by bugaboo and I think it is perfect for this project. I colored it with pro markers and the sentiment is highlighted with green sakura gel pen and fussy cut out it and assemble it near the brick wall. At the other side also a swirl attached using intricutz die cut from Couture creation Venetta. I added bling on the card using a bow, gems, pearls, decorative flowers to the scene for the finishing touch.

Look at the inside view:
                                         The lady you are seeing is hand drawn which I fussy cut  and then colored it with pro markers. The sentiment is stamped with Versa black color on a scalloped oval die cut and highlighted with Sakura gel pen and sponged with Opera pink colour. The flower bed is stamped with Versa brown ink and pink pro markers from We R Memory keepers Family set (new in my collection).

   There is really lots going on in this card but I really like how it turned out.
 I entered this card into the following challenges: -I love my promarkers for colouring images because they blend easily and Sakura glitter gel pens to create glittery effect
