a Window card - Sending Warm Wishes

Finally, spring comes here. Trees are starting to sprout new leaves. Those are really fresh and beautiful. And, many birds are singing outside!

I made a card yesterday night for this week's challenge of the Hero Arts. The project theme is 'window'. - creating cards, scrapbook pages, or objects with a window on it.
But, my idea was so humble... Originally, I love the scene at the window, the shape of window frames or windowpanes.
So, I made a card which scene is at the window near the big tree. Oh yes, I wanted to express my 'early spring'.

This is the card, 'a Window card - Sending Warm Wishes'.
The round small table was made by
--- using a part of the cake plate from the birthday cake stamp for the table top, and the decorative border stamp for the table legs, those stamps are from the Celebrate All Day Clear stamp set.

This is a close-up view around a flower vase and a bird cage.

  2. Hi Tomo-chan!
    I had to visit your blog and comment on your "window" card.
    So beautiful and so many wonderful details! I especially love the little
    table and the inside is so pretty, too! Such a delightful card! Well done...

  3. わぉ~、Naokoさんに見つかっちゃったのねぇ。まだ日本語も書いていないのに(^^;)(笑)
    このカード。 ベースに使っている紙の色合いが良いのよね。そうでなければ、このようなイメージには仕上がらない・・・。

  4. Oh, Donna!! Thanks for your visiting and your sweet comment!
    > I especially love the little table
    Thank you! I got the imagination by noticing that birthday cake plate and the decorative border.
    After that, I went to the concert of a symphony orchestra yesterday evening, after a long interval. I didn't remember pieces of music at all. I occupied myself in creating this card. LOL.

  5. Hi Tomo!

    I love your card! You express so well how we all feel when spring is starting! Wonderful ideas!

  6. Wow, Lin! You visited this blog, didn't you!?
    Oh, thanks so much!!
    Spring comes close to you in your state, I guess.
    Recently, various kinds of birds begin to twitter early in the morning here. They are so cute. I wanted to express this happiness onto this card. :)
