Flowers through the Window - Guest Desginer at Crafting by Designs

Back in June, I was super-inspired by my neighborhood and a sketch at Crafting by Designs, and was so pleased to have it chosen as a Spotlight project for that challenge as well as to be asked to be Guest Designer.

The theme this week at Crafting by Designs is Windows.

I used this beautiful digi stamp from Make It Crafty to create a Shaker Card filled with flower-shaped sequins.

My mom is visiting, and we've had tons of crafting fun. This card was made during a crafting retreat this weekend with friends at a hotel, and I didn't bring my Copics so I just used Mom's Sharpies. I'm pleased with the result and the company was fantastic! I also colored the white lace & wood embellishments with Sharpies. I added different colors of Flowersoft with Glossy Accents.
