just sitting here...

Okay, bear with as I explain my card....do you ever start a project and think you have all the details down....that you know just what you're going to do?

Yeah, that was me early Sunday morning when I started this seemingly easy looking card...

Sorry that the pics are so dark but I wanted to make sure that you see the {Hero Arts} clouds through the window {I inked it up with PTI Aqua Mist}...patting myself on the back for that...both the {Memory Box} window {make sure you check out that window...I changed it up a smidge} and the {Hero Arts} wingback chair are on strips of foam...


Do you see the 'hardwood floors'?  I used Gmund Savannah cardstock {used it for the window frame too}...love that stuff..The ribbon is Stampin' Up striped grosgrain & so is the patterned paper...

Okay, here you go....this was totally 'spur of the moment'...


Yes, this the inside of the card....oy vey....a card filled with paper piecing, distressing and masking..

My color combo is compliments of CR84FN11:  


Did you see the current Hero Arts challenge?




I decided to give this one a go:

Card Insides — Create cards that are stamped both inside and out! Cards can be of any theme.


That's why I prettied up the inside of the card...slightly time consuming but I had f-u-n...


This inside out card is also for the Scrappy Saturday Challenge...For the Love of Ribbon!



Thanks for stoppin' by...I'll be back tomorrow with a layout!
