IBSIC #47: Congrats

Hello everyone-
Thank you for stopping by today.
It's time for another photo inspirational challenge at Inspired by Stamping.
Look at that beautiful picture!!  I love that purple bike and the tulle as window drapes.
Once  I saw the drapes I knew what I wanted to create and this is what I came up with.
I used a brick embossing folder to give the card more texture.
Used a number of die cuts for the window, stems and flowers.
Look in the window....I colored some white tulle by rubbing the distress ink pad to give it's color.
And yes, there is a piece of acetate in the window.  :)
Isn't it just beautiful?  It's perfect card for someone who just recently bought a house.
That is why I used the "Congrats" sentiment from the Cute Circles stamp set.
So join us for a chance of winning 2 Satin or Seam Binding Ribbon, winner's choice.
