A little different card

I saw this color challenge on Stampin 411 and thought it was a great, different Valentines Day color combo.  As I sat at my crafting desk, I saw a piece of printed window sheet leftover from some thank yous I had made, and thought it would be fun to try a window card.

A little tough to see, but I used one of the dotted printed sheets as a window.  I focussed so much on the mechanics of creating a window, I kept the card really simple!  It could use more layers, in my opinion!

Here is another view where you can see the window sheet.  This is a fun design!  I will be trying it again!

stamps:  Stampin Up Always
cardstock:  Tempting Turquoise, Apricot Appeal, Real Red, printed window sheet
