Using Distress Oxide Inks for the Paper Players Challenge #376

It was a snowy day so I had some extra time in my craft room today to make this card for The Paper Players Challenge #376.  

This next picture was taken from a different angle so you can see the shimmery leaves from the Close to My Heart Clear Shimmer Brush.

I used a window frame that I had created in Design Space a few weeks ago and cut another window from craft foam to pop it up.  The background was created with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink and a little spritz of water.  The window panel was sponged with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink and the leaves were cut from paper inked with Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Ink.  The stamped and diecut leaves are from the Chelsea Gardens Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cut Die set.  The Birthday greeting is from a retired CTMH set called "Card Chatter--Birthday" and was stamped in Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink. 

Here is the challenge graphic from the Paper Players:
