window card

i have an upcoming workshop and am finding it difficult to get set up. i have not yet received my first order out of the new 2007-2008 SU catalog so i can only use sets that did not retire.
-first off, let me just say how excited and disappointed i am in the sets that made it through to the current catalog. "doodle this", "polka dots & paisley", "polka dots & petals" (all from spring mini 2007), "carte postale", "french flair", "snow flurries" (all from winter mini 2006-2007) are all great sets and i am glad they made it to the current catty. HOWEVER, "love matters", "jolly holiday", "small sayings", and "trees three" (all from winter mini 2006-2007) are all great sets and i don't want to part with them! since i can only demo current sets i have put many of my retired sets on ebay so DH doesn't yell at me for buying new stamps. but these sets are so great!
anywho, back to the card at hand. stamps sets used are "doodle this" and "happy everything". since i have an abundance of CChip and bashful blue CS, i decided to use those, used black stazon, bashful blue & ballet blue inks, & used coluzzle system to cut the circle window. colored image with watercolor pencils, you can't really see it in the photo, but dazzling diamonds help the flower 'shine'. CChip grosgrain is the final touch!
i am looking for a bold image to do a scented card next...... wish me luck!
