These little girls are whispering about Lydia's "Dare To Get Dirty" challenge.
I love making vintage cards, sometimes I wish I was born 100 years ago, then I remind myself that 100 years ago they didn't have embossing folders, cuttlebugs, Simon Says Stamp,Tim Holtz, metal dies......splitcoast stampers....oh it must have been dreadful back in 1913.
This is just a normal square card, layered with a lovely dp by Authentique. The little girls are cut from a 12x12 sheet of Pion Design paper called Almas Sewing Room.
It is hard to see in the photo but the window box is about 1/4" deep. The lace curtains give a 3D look to the window frame. The frame was made by placing 1/4" score tape on cardstock and then cutting with a blade and ruler. Acetate was used to look like glass.
I have torn the house apart and can't find my rolled rose die, so the big flowers are just circles cut round and around. The little flowers were made with my Martha Stewart hydrangea punch.
Kittie747 and Blooms in a Box (Pat) never fail to inspire me and everything I know about flowers and windows is because of them. I almost faint when they comment on my cards LOL.
Have a wonderful day everyone and a huge thank you to the Dirty Girls who have made this week possible.

My dear sweet Susie, you didn't make a "normal" card. It is another AMAZING work of art and scupture. You really bring your scenes to life! I am glad you weren't born 100 years ago too! I LOVE all your incredible cards, your details are always spot on and everything is always so pretty! LOVE your tiny flowers and the image is so sweet! LOVE it all!!!

I love your amazing creations, and I am glad this has been your century because we may not have gotten to see these creations except on "RoadShow" if someone had hoarded them in mint condition over the years. You have amazing talent and your fine sense of humor to go with it. Thanks for sharing both here on SCS.
Susie, this is an incredibly beautiful vintage window card. Every detail is perfect right down to the sweet fence and flowers. Your lace drapes are so pretty and the whispering girls just tickled me since I grew up in a house with four girls. Thank you for such a lovely compliment to both me and Pat. You are so sweet.
