Guess I win the bonus round in todays Color Challenge, I worked in the fourth color, night of navy! Thanks Emily, I went to the SU catalog and those colors are dreamy together. Adding the navy definitely helps my window effect.
I did a complete right turn on todays challenge, but am pleased with the effect. This card will go to my parents ...the Western Union stamp ends with the little town my mother grew up. The stamp is part of Oxford Impressions winter snow set. It included the tree you see in the window. The fabulous window is from Stampinks...inked in VersaFine onyx black and embossed, I chalked it till I liked the way it look. I stamped tiny snowflakes on the shutters and embossed with Kaleidoscope ep. The Christmas is stamped with VersaFine smokey gray onto SU baja breeze. I cut and placed it in front of Kiwi Kisses. The Western union message is inked directly onto night of navy with Nick Bantock cerlean azure.
Thanks so much for your comments, I love to read how my art strikes you! Have a happy Tuesday.

Just love your wonderful window scene, Susan! How perfect for today's colors! The window and tree stamps are terrific! The special meaning of the Western Union stamp will surely be appreciated! This is just delightful!
