365 Cards: Ad Inspired!!

Happy Saturday everybody! I hope it's sunny where you live. It is here and I am out and about today doing some yard work and getting pulled together from this crazy week. But wanted to stop and say HI! and show you a card (I am so predictable ; ) This is todays challenge at 365 Cards. Its an Ad Inspiration, and can I say I LOVE This room. I want to live here and sleep in that bed...for a long long time. Its just fabulous. 

I started out my card, but really when I got it finished it didn't feel a lot like the room, except for the colors. But  nonetheless, its my card and I created it, so here she is:
I have been wanting to make a window card since they featured them on the Hero Arts blog last week. This is actually the first time I have made one from scratch. I used an Exacto to cut out the window and then put some acetate over it. I pulled out Birds of a Feather by Papertrey Ink that hasn't been used in a while.
You can see I double stamped the flower image to get some depth and I had to add a button and some floss, just to round out the project. One day I will find a different embellishment that I love just as much and you will have to endure that on every card too. Can't wait for that right!?!?
Thats it today. Hope you are having a smashing weekend!

Stamps: Papertrey ink Birds Of A Feather
Ink: Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy, Palette Chartreuse, Stazon Jet Black, Color Box Chalk Lipstick, SU! Summer Sun
Paper: Papertrey Ink New Leaf, Sweet Blush, Stampers Select White. Acetate (from Staples)
Accessories: Red Button and floss from stash
