Winter Window

I am so excited, I just got in the mail yesterday my new dies from PoppyStamps, they are two window dies one of which I used in this card I am showing today. I used the bigger of the two dies for this card. I stamped some trees with distress ink, using different shades of color to create depth, then to add more depth, I added 3d foam dots under the window.
I made the wreath with the Martha Stewart sprig punch, and some bling and a bow.
Then added some more sprigs at the bottom of the window and draped some lights that I have had in my stash for some time.
I had to use this PP, as the card was made for a local contest and they provide the supplies and you have to make whatever card you would like with what they give you, and you can add what ever you would like as well, The card is also for the weekly Challenge over at Joans Gardens. She is now carrying these window dies as well, when I ordered them I did not know she would be carrying them, as I saw them used on another blog, called KittieKraft, she does beautiful work.
So if you have time check out the challenge over at Joan's, wonderful place to visit and do some shopping !! :)
