Hi there! Cathy here to host the It’s In The Cards Challenge for March 24, 2011. When I sat down to create a template for this card challenge I was surrounded by inspiration. Starting with the wonderful ScrapMatters Newsletter which was decorated with the collab kit Sunshine in Your Heart by Plum Dumpling Designs and Jeanine DeOre. I decided I just had to use that for my design. I even used one of the quotes from the Newsletter too.
My husband was busy at work replacing some of the broken screens for our windows since the Spring weather is coming and we will soon be able to open our windows! I really can’t wait to get some of those fresh warm breezes blowing through the house. And that made me decide on the design for the card challenge…. a window card!
You can download a zipped file with the layered template and .pngs for my card template here, or by clicking on the preview image.
Here is my sample outside of the card:
Inside the card:

You can receive an additional point for using new Scrap Matters products; please make a note of new products in your forum post. And at the end of the month you’ll be entered into a random drawing that could earn you some bonus points!
-You have until the end of March to complete this challenge to earn MOS points.
