Window view for PPA287

Hello, Stampers!

I've been a busy girl today!  This is the first post of two.  Don't forget to check out the second post when you are done drooling over this card!  

This card is for this week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge.  I find color challenges harder than sketches, but I'm happy with the way this one turned out.  Here's the color palette:


And here's my card:

I decided I wanted the window scene to really stand out so I did the rest of the card in white.  I gave my base some dimension with the Brick Wall embossing folder.  I also used Dimensionals to pop the window die cut up.  The three colors in the challenge make a pretty bright combo.  I softened them a bit by water coloring the image from the Happy Home stamp set.  The Brick Wall embossing folder can be found in the Annual Catalog.  The Happy Home stamp set is in the Occasional catalog.

Check out to see what other stampers did with this color challenge.

Happy Stamping!
