Loving Thoughts ... Open Design Team Call

I am so glad to be back with another BEE-autiful challenge from

Deep, sultry colors with an amazing graphic to match!

I definitely don't feel I did the colors justice with my card,
but I really love the combo.
I brought out the 'vintage' this week using Spellbinders
Decorative Dress Forms die and Want2Scrap's
matching Nestabling.
I layered papers from Webster's Pages, stamped one of
my favorite sentiments from The Craft's Meow
and embellished a little more using Prima flowers
and a gemstone flourish.

This week, we are happy to welcome back

Simon Says Stamp

as our sponsor!

We'd love to have you play, so make sure you stop by
and check out the inspiration from our design team.

Speaking of Design Team, we are having our 
first open call in over a year!
We are looking for designers who love to play with
color, enjoy being a part of a 'family-oriented' team
and enjoy inspiring others.

All the details are in The Cafe.

Before I go, don't forget....

Tomorrow I begin celebrating my
3rd Anniversary 
here at The Open Window.

I am thrilled to say that the prize total is up to
and includes quite a few more companies than you
see here on the original banner!

The celebration will be all about the friendships I've made
along the way, fun stories and photos and of course...
PRIZES ! ! !

It all begins at 8am EDT tomorrow .... and goes through Sunday.
There is no blog hop to complete, just make plans to pop by
each day, let me know you were here and cross your fingers.

Love that card and love want2scrap! I really can't remember how I came upon your blog but I think it was through Linda Ledbetter or Linda Cain or some other talented woman like you!! Glad we have a chance to comment on all the posts thru the 18th cause I'll be at work part of the day. They frown on using the net for things like this! LOL Enjoy your day and thanks for all the opportunities to celebrate with you!

This card is gorgeous, and I think the colors are well represented in such a soft, subtle way that really goes along well with the style of your card! Love your new picture on the side bar, great smile!
