Die Cut Divas ~ April Challenge

We have a new monthly challenge at Die Cut Divas where our challenge is


Also, we have a sponsor this month, PoppyStamps who will be offering our winner a $20 gift certificate to their online store.

Here's my card

So, I took a little bit of creative license for my card. It "sort of" has a window or aperture but my "window" is closed! I used Poppystamps Simple Lantern Oval die to create my card. I die cut with black cardstock and again with white cardstock. On the white cardstock "center" piece, I added color with squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, blueprint sketch and black soot distress ink and ink daubers (for a bit more control of where the color was being put down). I wanted a bit more of an "eerie" feeling to the card, so I "closed" the window with some vellum. I placed the "center" piece behind the vellum for a frosted, "eerie" feel to my card. I used a darker gray card base. For the sentiment, I used STAMPlorations Shine Bright clear stickers. 

We'd love to see your window/aperture card.
