I die cut the window 3 times and glued them in a stack for dimension, and then traced around the window on a separate piece of cs. After cutting that out, I masked a circle for the sun and then blended the yellow and pink around the sun. Removed the post-it and dabbed a bit of yellow on the moon, and then stamped the branch and trees with chocolate chip ink. I glued the sunset piece of cs on the card front and then glued the window "stack" on top of that. Stamped the sentiment and then embossed the decorative lines to frame the sentiment with a stylus.

What a beauty, Maura. There are so many gorgeous elements. Your sponging and use of the colors is very creative. You are so masterful with blending the colors and adding features like a moon/sun to create your scenes. I love all of the white space and your layered window makes me want to run right out and buy one to make a card like this.

Wow - amazing! It's so simple and yet so intricate. The sentiment matches perfectly and I love the embossing - so subtle yet it adds an importance to the sentiment that wouldn't otherwise be there. Again: Wow!
