Ok, this is my first weekly challenge ever. I'm so glad I did it! It's not my favorite card, but having a picture in my mind definately got me going. (I think the hardest part about making cards is figuring out where to start!!)
Well.... (as I said in the description of my card) I wasn't going to do this challenge, but I needed 2 'guy cards' for this week, and thought..... why not try this layout. I never like my 'guy cards'.... just because.... well..... because they're GUY cards! ) no flowers or 'pretty colors'!!
Anyway, I looked at this challenge AFTER I finished my card, and noticed my window piece is going the wrong way. I hope that doesn't matter.
I am glad you posted this challenge Andrea - I know I would never have tried this layout without you!! I hope I will get a chance to do another one - I always have these beautiful cards in my mind... unfortunatly, something gets lost in translation!! Hee! Hee! Thanks again!!
Whew.......I finally uploaded my SC34 card. Pending as of 11:00a.m. PST. A really fun challenge that made me think.....Oh No!!! I combined with CC23 and really liked the results. Hope you girls do to. Thanks Andrea for the idea. Nancy

Okay I got another card done with this sketch. Once I got the first one done I figured I could do it again and this one was much easier.
My sister in law found this pansy stamp for me at a resale. It was in a bag for two dollars and the bag had thirty two unmounted stamps. Wow! What a deal and I got them all! They aren’t SU but I'll make use of it anyway! I did pair it with a couple dependable SU sets. Here's the card made with a cheap stamp!

I'm going back and "catching up" on some previous sketches. This one was so unique & lots of fun! It took me a long time to get the shrinky-dink charm just right, though (and it took me almost a whole sheet of shrink plastic!). I'm very happy with the result, though!
