Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month we are highlighting the Layering a Window Card Technique as shown on page 33 in the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book!  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique. 
We would love to see what you’ve created using this month’s technique, please visit our challenge blog at http://technicallyterrific.blogspot.com where you can share your project and be entered in a chance to win great prizes.  You will also find a listing of all participants and their blog addresses if you should get lost or want to reference a blog along the way.  Let’s get started!
If you are coming from Wendy's Blog, you are on the right track! 
For this month's technique, I chose a 5.5" card with a heart window cut out with the Cricut using the Art Philosophy cartridge. I'm using CTMH's Pemberley paper pack with some Tulip cardstock for the background behind the flowery doily piece that I cut out of the reverse side of the B&T I used for the card front. I used the zip strip for borders on the top & bottom of the card, added the Basic Assortment in the buttons to outline one side of the heart that I had sponged around the edges with Cocoa ink & ended it with a bow of Color-Ready Seam Binding Ribbon colored with Tulip ink. And, to finish it off I added the i & u to say I love you. Who wouldn't love receiving this beautiful card?  
Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue on to Bethany's Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation. Happy hopping!

That is a neat card. Which how the colors go well together and blend I didn't see the doily in the heart, I just seen patterns. =) I thought that was neat.

Thanks, ladies!
Rachel, I just decided to carry the buttons on around to the center of the heart on top. May have to change the picture out!
Tabbi, I just used the reverse side of the blue b&t. It was darker & added more contrast.
