DCM dare. Remember Playschool?

This week's dare was "Through The Window".
Use an aperture on your card. I love apertures, they
add excitement to a card, because you can sneak a peek
of what is behind!!!
I have two designs in mind but the second one is still
in construction stage!!!
(I had an arguement with the charm & jump ring!)
this one is very simple. It is a teddy bear with balloon
coloured with chalks. The balloon is duplicated onto the front
above the window so that when the card is closed the teddy
still appears to be holding his balloon.
It was for a Naming Ceremony, for my Financial Advisor, Carl
who works in our office.
The other one is in progress & may appear later on today!!!!

Paula, I love this, it's so swet and pretty and just perfect for the occasion.

Love the soft blue shades and the delicate pastel colours of the drawing. If you drew that then I'm soooo jealous that I might not talk to you again! ;-)

Hope you're feeling better bu now. Back pain is no joke, so make sure you take care of yourself
