PTI Stamp-a-Faire Challenge #3

I'm sneaking in with one last Papertrey Ink Stamp-a-Faire Challenge for the night. This one is for Challenge #3, which was to make a window card using dies or punches and tie a ribbon or twine on one side from the window to the side of the card. I had a blast playing along with the challenges today and watching the videos from Stamp-a-Faire, and chatting on the message boards with the other lovely PTI lovers playing along from home!
I worked in no particular order for the challenges, I just basically ran with any ideas that popped in my head along the way! This last card I am not very happy with, and would normally just scrap it, and it would certainly never make it to my blog! However, I am running out of time, and I really want to get one more card in before the challenges close!
Oh, and I ran out of daylight, so please excuse the photo quality!
 I made my window with the Mat Stack 4 die, and I liked the way the Edgers #1 die matched in shape, so there's that. Then, I layered the inside with Stamper's Select. I stamped each of the vases on the same pattern of paper with each just having a slightly different shade of grey/ black. That paper is from Stampin' Up. Finally, I just stamped the flower, colored with my Promarkers, and stamped the sentiment and tied the Papertrey Ink twine to the side. Then I called this card done!
I am so glad these challenges got me to finally show this set some ink! I wish I could have gotten a couple more cards in, but I am a SLOW stamper/ card maker! I am also so glad for these challenges because I finally updated my blog after a couple months! I do actually have quite a few more cards I've made, so I'll definitely work on getting those posted over the next couple days or so! I hope you'll come back then!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
