When I Can't Sleep ...

I play with my stampin' toys! I'm blaming these recent sleepless nights on the nasty midwest weather ... many heavy storms, followed by blazing heat and humidity. I suppose I can sleep through the heat, but the rain and lightning through my bedroom skylights make it dang near impossible. Anyway, I decided not to fight it last night and wandered into my stamping quarters and dug out these lovely window sheets to play with. Ok, I totally messed one up trying to figure out how to affix them without the adhesive showing - there has to be a clean and simple way to do this that my brain is refusing to process. Any suggestions???

I ended up using glue dots in the upper corners to stick the window sheet on - then covered them with a photo corner and pearls from the SU Pretties kit. I would have rather left the entire card blank, but those dang glue dots stick out like a sore thumb (as did everything else I tried)! The bottom I did use regular adhesive, just covered it with an eyelet punched piece of cardstock and ribbon. I fiddled with the ribbon a bit to have the polka dots only on the bow edges, decided I really like this new in color ribbon since it can be used plain or printed. While I'm not 100% sold on the card, I really do like how the bow turned out! hahahaha
