This Week's Challenge Card

 
 
Click on the picture to enlarge it for a better view.
 
I started out by embossing a piece of white card stock with Crafters Companion 6x6 Snowflake Embossing folder.  Versa Mark was spread across the snowflakes and glittered with Wow Glitter.
I think this window die from Marianne is my favorite Window die.  It was cut and embossed and then a piece of Elizabeth's Shimmer sheet was cut and placed behind the top Window.  Using one of Marianne's Vintage Papers behind the window becomes the focal point of the card. 
Impression Obsession trees were cut, embossed with Swiss Dots and also glittered with the Wow Glitter.
Then a piece of dark green cardstock (it looks black, but it isn't) was stitched on my sewing machine for some interest and placed on a piece of 6x5.5 cardstock.  The Embossed Snowflake cardstock was popped up as were the trees, package, snowflakes and window.

You can make 3 cards this week
Below is what you need to do for this week's challenge
  • Use Any Colors
  • Window
  • Trees
  • You must use a product sold at Joan's Gardens.  Also, mention that you are doing the card/project for Joan's Gardens Challenge. It would be nice if you would add this link to your post: www.atjoansgardens.com
 
You will have until next Thursday, November 28 morning 6:00 AM EST to link your project.
A winner will be chosen from a random drawing for week #47 the winner of the challenge will be announced November 29.
 
This week's winner will receive a Poppy Stamp Die
 
The winner will also be entered in the 2013 end of the year $100 gift certificate drawing.
 
Because my last day as the owner of Joan's Gardens is December 14, I will be doing the drawing for the $100 gift Certificate on November 29th. (next week)  I might need to order something and I want to have time to get it in and get it shipped before my last day.
 
 So, don't miss out.  Be sure you enter this last week of my Challenges.  Terri is going to continue the challenges, but because December is so  busy for everyone, she plans to start them again the first week of January.
