Oh man, when I first saw this suite I was so intimidated! I think stained glass is one of the most beautiful forms of art and felt there was no way I could do justice to this art form. I saw a similar post by Terri Mills and thought “what the heck I think I can do that”, while I admit I have a ways to go, isn’t this just beautiful? Proving again how easy it is to create something you can be proud of using Stampin’ Up products.

You can’t tell very well by looking at the photo but the bottom part of the glass window is a shaker box with glistening sequins and pearls. I created the whole card with no thought to the sentiment and had a terrible time coming up with something that fit the style and leftover space, then I remembered some stickers from Sale-A-Bration and really like the way it turned out.

Lately I’ve been trying to come up with something simple for the inside because I feel like it really sets the card apart and since I’d already colored the birds I decided to glue them on the inside, super simple.
