Hello, sweet friend!

 Hello, sweet friends! I hope you are having a fabulous day! I was so excited to get the Market Street: Make It Market Kit delivered! 
 After I made the flower cart the other day, I couldn't help but start experimenting with the rest of the kit. Of course there was a learning curve with these elements of the kit as well. 
I noticed that there is a squarish shape included in the set of dies and I couldn't remember what it was for. I was really hoping it was to cut out the center portion of the window, but it doesn't fit.
 I really wanted to make a cute shaker card element inside the window. Since the die cut didn't fit, I cut it with my paper trimmer, very roughly, I might add. LOL! Next time I will use a pencil and ruler. Since the building has a slant to it for perspective purposes, it was a little tricky.
 I did remember, after I cut out the cart, that the squarish die is to add if you want to create a pull out sentiment. Whew! That was bugging me! The building was sponged in pink, with darker pink details. I used two shades of grey ink for the awning. The lamp post is sponged as well and I spritzed some yellow ink around it to give a soft glow. I also added some translucent Nuvo drops to look like glass. It cracked for some reason, but I kind of like the effect.
The shop window is stamped with white Staz On ink and there are Crystal clear sequins and sprinkles inside as well as a coordinating bunch of flowers as the ones in the cart. The cart and flowers are the pre-printed ones included in the set of pattern papers.  The sentiment that I added to the cart is from the newish Simple Friendship sentiment set. I had fun putting this card together. Thanks for fluttering by!

Well this is just fantastically gorgeous! You have made an amazing card and if you need someone to send it to, I'll give you my address!!

May I ask - did you use the printed papers for the flowers in the cart? If not, may I also ask what colors you used to stamp them?

Thank you!

Thank you so much! I did use the pre-printed papers for the cart and flowers. I bought an extra set when I placed my order so I don't feel like I have to hoard them! LOL!
