Subtle Beauty....

Welcome back to The Open Window.

Are you ready for a bee-autiful color story from

This week's suggested colors are...

Avocado...Blue Mist...Grey Wool

I just bought this embossing folder a couple days ago and I love it.
It's a Wreath EF from Sizzix.  I used a textured cardstock, which is
difficult to see in the photo, but the texture is beautiful.

The sentiment is from EAD Designs Stickerz collections,
the seam binding is from one of my favorite Etsy shops,
The flowers are by The Paper Studio & Recollections.

I am so excited about this week's brand new sponsor

I mentioned a couple of days ago that my teammate Karola Witczak
sent me a collection of her designs at The ScrapCake and I just love them.
(you can see that card HERE)

Thanks so much for popping by.
I hope you'll have a sec to leave a note to let me know you were here.

I'll be back tomorrow with a VERY special post as I am guest
designing for a terrific'll see!

Subtle beauty - no kidding. Had to come by to see how you made that frame. Now I know. The font of the sentiment is gorgeous too - like your card.
