The window is cut out in Whisper White using the Layering Squares Framelits (141708) and mounted on cardstock (also cut out with the layering Squares Framelits) which is the same as the base card.

The Whisper White mat is embossed with Stampin' Up! Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (141468).  I adhered a thin piece of Gold Glimmer paper (133719) behind the candle flames and added coordinating Gold Metallic Thread (138401)

Stampin' Up! Bright Wishes - water coloured

I find colouring in very relaxing as my mind wanders and my hand scribbles.  I saw this wishing well in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue and just couldn't wait to use it and showcase it in my catalogue launch. Simply coloured with Stampin' Up!  Water colour pencils and worked with an aqua pen and blender pen, I created these two cards to showcase.
