My First DT Entry.....for Creative Pointe Cutting Challenge!!!

Well.....TODAY'S THE DAY!!! My very first Design Team Entry for Creative Pointe!!! I'm super excited and so hope you'll like what I created......The name of the challenge blog is:

Creative Cutting Challenge

The Theme for this Challenge is "Anything Goes"........That made it SO nice but hard at the same time!!! ;)  I used a couple of files from The Creative Point and the other files I created.........So here we go....

On this card I used the "Window Wipes" (that's the nickname I've given them for my description......The Creative Point refers to them as "ARTY Accents"........and the Banner which I have my phrase written on is from The Pumpkin Patch set from The Creative Point....I'll share a link to the sets at the end of this post......

I really had alot of fun with this once I figured what I wanted to do.......I started my idea off with their "ARTY Accents" and went from there....don't they make you think of when your windows are fogged or frosted up and you can't see out so you wipe or scrape the window???!! ;) 
So from there I knew I wanted a window of some I drew this one and then decided I wanted a window box so I drew that as well......did the layers and put it all together......I saved all of my pieces and sent them to SCAL3.......and cut them all with my Silver Bullet Professional Cutter......(LOVE this machine).
Once I had the frame of the window cut...(which I used a file folder as the material) I coated it in Perfect Medium and then covered with embossing powder and heat embossed......looks like real wood...don't you think???.....Then I cut some acetate and glued with a Zig Pen to the window....then the layer of Vellum (which I got the Vellum from The Paper Temptress) I added the Garden scene behind that......adhered all that to a layer piece that is the same shape only I cut a Shadow layer of the shape to give a border around the window......
At this point I put the window box together and then added foam squares to attach to the window it would give it more of a 3D affect.......added some of my vines and then some of my coffee filter PDC Grungy Roses and coffee filter PDC Cala Lilies.........I also distressed the edges of the pieces with Tea Dye Distress Ink......Added some bird buttons I had in my stash......
On the inside of the card I took a piece of lace border and colored quickly with the same Tea Dye Distress Ink and then attached to the inside of the card....added a bird button and some pearls from my stash...Then I used a Black Ultra Fine Sharpie and put it in the Pen Tool Holder that I got from Sherri at That's Scrap Inc. and used my Silver Bullet Professional Cutter to draw the phrase and then cut out the banner....distressed the edges with Tea Dye Distress Ink and added foam squares to attach to card.... and the card is complete!!!  I love the soft look of this card!!!! you like it???? Would love to hear your thoughts......
