Well didn't this challenge at Moxie Fab show me that I hardly have any "minty" green paper, tons of green, but not mint! Because the inspiration photos are so lovely I scrounged around in my stash and found a few sheets of minty paper.

My inspiration was this beautiful cottage kitchen, isn't it lovely, so warm and inviting.

I die cut a small kitchen cabinet (or window if you prefer) to mimic the one above, I then stamped a few vases onto the green paper using green ink.  I thought about removing the panes and stamping on the background card stock, but finally decided against it.  I decorated each vase with some decor elements, stamped a little label with a background of one of the vases and the sentiment over that.


I like the card, but I LOVE the bow.  I could never, I mean never tie a beautiful bow and I'd always admire all the gorgeous ones I'd see on other cards.  WELL, no more I found a tutorial on easy-peasy bow tying (at and this is the result, isn't it scrumptious?  Of course the yummy chocolate satin ribbon does the real trick.  H'mm chocolate, maybe I'll go look through my other stash to see what I can come up with.

Thanks for looking and I'd love to hear from you, I appreciate all your comments.

Nancy this is Gorgeous! OMG I love how you used the window to make the china cabinet... how clever! The little vases look right at home peeking through the windows. OF course the chocolate satin ribbon is fabulous and your bow turned out perfect...Hugs.
