Grateful For You Notecard set

Good morning!
SSHH!! Everyone is still in bed here at the Conner home, so I am sneaking around with my coffee and getting ready to do some stamping! :) I love it when I can find some quiet time to create, with no one shouting 'MOM' every minute!! Right??
This set of little note cards came into existance quite accidentally. I had cut strips of the Lemon Tart cardstock to die cut the shape for another project, and the frames that were left over inspired this project. Love it when it works out that way!
I stamped the text background on the frames with Chocolate chip ink, and stitched the fabulous buttons on with twine. The I stamped the doodle frame and sentiment on Whisper White cardstock, with Groovy Guava and Choc Chip inks, added the flower stamp, and positioned the cardstock  frame over the image and adhered with foam dots. Then I trimmed away any excess white cardstock, and adhered the panel to the Friends Till the End Dark Chocolate patterned paper.
I die-cut the large scallops from a sheet of Melon Berry cardstock, and attached them to the panel, then adhered the whole thing to the Kraft card base.
This was a great project, and I am sure I will make more cards with this window effect in the future. It was so much fun, and pretty easy too!
Here is the inside of each notecard. I really love that flower image!!

Hope you enjoyed my creations today!
Have a fabulous weekend!
