Window card....but not what you think!

I made a window card today that is my simple style.

Over at our Critter challenge blog, Marsha is hosting our latest challenge....make a recessed window card. Oh my, the instructions for this card over on SCS were.....well challenging! I didn't get a card made with those instructions. I was pulling my hair out! I did get a window card done though.....using clean and simple rules :-)
You know me....I make it SIMPLE!
Sorry Marsha! I hope this can "sort of" fit in the challenge.


This card also goes along with today CAS and Try a new Technique challenges over on SCS. Dry embossing and emboss on embossing.

I cut a piece of Rose Red dsp after I punched "windows" in a piece of white card stock with my circle punch. I then ran it through my big shot with the patterns 2 texture plate, then distressed it. I cut a scallop circle from white card stock and ran it through my big shot with the eyelet texture plate. I added a vintage brad and a sentiment from Thank You Kindly.

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time...
Blessings...

Yep, those instruction were a little over whelming! I like the simplicity of your card though. It came out great.
