Magic Window Card.

It is a new challenge over on the Butterfly Blog. The letter is M and the card shape is Magic Window Card.
As usual there is a tutorial for you over on the blog and you will find it under the card shapes tab at the top of the page.
The challenge is running again for 4 weeks so this gives plenty of time. I hope you will give the card shape a try as it is not as difficult as it appears.

My card for your inspiration uses:
Magic Window Card/Mandarin/Magnolia/Mint/Butterfly.

 I have used a paper from my stash to decorate the front of the card. The small orange butterflies are the waste from a circle butterfly die( which I use for making up  the butterfly wheel for each challenge). Larger butterflies are an SU punch. Pearls were from my stash.

 Here you can see the card opening up to reveal the sentiment behind the magic window.  The sentiment is from a stamp set by Julie Hickey called circle Sentiments.

I bought loads of bulbs yesterday at the garden centre so before my enthusiasm runs out I need to start getting them planted.
 Hope you will come and have a play with the new challenge.

Fabulous card shape and great background papers. I remember the round window and the square window but for the life I'm could not remember the third window, must have been the magic window.
Loved your comment on my Allsorts post.
