Just wanted to say...

Hello again! Luckily today is a much nicer (read: less windy) day so I might be able to go out and potter in the garden later! It's the last day of our holidays today which is a pity, but I suppose we have to go back so that we can get paid which means more stamps and supplies, right? :)

I created the following card based on three, yes that's right, three challenges!

Hero Arts' September Challenge - Create a window card
Annabelle Stamps Birthday Celebration Challenge 2 to use a flower/bloom on a project
 Jay Gee's Nook's Challenge 11 using the below photo inspiration

Without further ado, here is the card I created:

Just wanted to say... (1)

Just wanted to say... (2)
I used lots of Hero Arts for this card. I used the flowery coasters in the middle of Jay Gee's inspiration photo as my inspiration when selecting stamps and chose the second largest flower of the 'Flowers' cling set from Hero Arts. I coloured it using a Marvy marker in Yellow and stamped it inside the window I created using my Spellbinders circle die in the Bigshot. I stamped the 'just wanted to say...' part of the sentiment from the 'Just Wanted' set from Hero Arts, and the 'Thanks very much' part is from 'Simple Messages' (also Hero Arts!) in Versafine Black Onyx ink.
I then tied a knot in yellow Kaisercraft ribbon to go above the sentiment and used a small glue dot to affix a white button to the center of the flower.

Thanks for looking. I'm going to go downstairs and make sure there hasn't been any casualties in the garden from the wind yesterday. Wish me luck! :)
