Frosty Window and MFT December Guest Designer

Here is a card I made last night for the MFT guest designer challenge for December. The challenge was watercoloring. I really enjoyed making this card. The other day I showed you a card which was similar but view from outside in. This time I wanted to make a view from inside out. I stamped the image from MFT set "Baby it's cold outside" on watercolor paper and I colored it with my aqua painter and ink pads. then I cut out a piece ( same size as the watercolor paper, I left the piece of watercolor paper larger than the image, so there is space for sticky strip on the edges) of acetate. I adhered 3 piece of sticky strip on the edges of the watercolor paper, and left the top with no sticky strip and adhered the acetate. Then I poured some crystal fine glitter in to get the frosty look on the window and like there is snow blizzard outside.Then I sealed the top so the glitter stays in. We don't want glitter all over our house, do we? And my window was done. Next I adhered the ribbon to look like curtain around the image. And you get the rest of the story about making of this card....
Anyway...I just found out that I was picked to be Guest Designer for MFTstamps for December.
