Welcome Autumn: House of Cards November Challenge

                 
                                              
House of Cards   November Challenge:   
Technique Challenge: Stamped Punch Window
 
 
                                            
For my card I started with this Autumn digi from Sparkle N Sprinkle, after coloring with my Copics I added some glitter to the cats and leaves (see close up below) and then on to making my punched window.  Be sure to check out House of Cards for Mynn's video on how to do this technique and each week a team member will have another video with a twist. 

Normally your paper forming the frame to your window is mounted with foam tape, my frame was too skinny or it was the embossing but it was not pretty so I cut out several windows  and glued them together to get the dimension I needed for my window. I added some sequins and an embossed Pumpkin and was good to go!

Since I received this card I must say it is much brighter and glittery
than it shows here. When I received it I couldn't believe how gorgeous it was. Superior job Donna. Mom
