Blogger's Challenge: Cardboard

edited to add:  Guess it would help if when I'm pre-posting my stuff that I would actually attach the pictures of my projects and WRITE up my blog post?

See, I've been trying to get "ahead" of the game this past week, so when I finished a card, I typed all the info up on the card and was supposed to go back and add in my project.  Whoops!

So today is Friday which is Blogger's Challenge and Lisa has given us the challenge of working with cardboard.  My idea is not super original or anything, but I think it turned out just how I envisioned it.

Last weekend while playing in the challenges over at SCS, I created this for the Hope you Can Cling to Challenge HYCCT1106: Looking in on You! hosted by texasgrammy aka Bev Gerard.  The image are some "hand me downs" from my friend Libby, she had about 4 of these flowers embossed on vellum so I colored on the back of them with my copic markers.

The cardboard I peeled off a layer of it so it was a little "feathery" and then ran it through my cuttlebug with the beaded square die.  I layered a white piece of cardstock behind the vellum and attached it behind the cutout to give it the window effect.

Hope you will join us over at blogger's challenge today, link up your project here or below to show us your cardboard creation. 

Card details:
Cardstock: Sweet Blush, A Blanc Check, Cardboard
Inks: Dish All the Dirt Brown, embossing, copics
Embellishments: Kaiser Crafts Hot Pink Pearls, Glossy Accents, Spellbinders Nestabilities Square and Beaded Square Dies
