Online Card Class (Homework from Day 6)

Hello, Happy Monday!
 I am popping in to share another card inspired by the Online Card Classes . This technique was taught by one of my favorite stampers Tasnim Ahmed. It is an easy technique with masking. I really had fun and did my own take on this technique.
thank you
 I used my new favorite stamp set from Altenw called Whimsical Flowers. This card is perfect for the new Virginia's View Challenge (Shaker Cards). I used a Spellbinder Die (Label 12) that I rarely use. I think it suits the design.
close-up
I took the extra die cut ( the cut out from the window) and stamped another flower and popped it on the side of the window. It really was a "cover-up" as I stamped a small flower and it went wrong. Note to myself: never stamp on a foam. 

I hope that you check out the fun shaker cards challenge. It really is easier than you think!
Thanks for stopping by!
