Florence Window Card



Today's card was inspired by my fabulous college's roommate postcard from Florence.  I keep thinking of all these amazing places she goes (click here for another card inspired by Beth) and was thinking of her standing and looking out at a window at some colorful flags outside and I know that she'd be thinking "wish you were here" and toasting me with a glass of wine.  A girl can dream right?  I've used this week's Play Date Cafe colors and a loose take on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge (woo hoo for being the random winner from last week-- I love winning free stamps).



Materials: Waltzingmouse Stamps Frame It Sentiment, WPlus9 Woodgrain Silhouette, PTI Mat Stack 3 die, My Favorite Things Die-namic large scallop die, Core'dinations card stock, Versafine black ink, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Antique Linen
