Convention Trade #5

Hi all,
I love this card which features the new In Color, Bermuda Bay. Materials include:
Petal Pizzazz (113417, 32.95 p 113), Sincere Salutations (115068, 23.95, p 143), Whisper white cardstock (100730, 7.50/40, p 159), Bermuda Bay cardstock (115317, 5.50/24, p 155), Bermuda Bay Polka Dotted ribbon (115610, 9.95, p 182),
Circle Fire Rhinestone brads (109110, 10.95, p 179), Rich Regals Colored brads (106953, 8.95, p 179), Rich Razzleberry pad (115658, 5.95, p 155), Melon Mambo pad (115656, 5.95, p 155), Bermuda Bay pad (115655, 5.95. p 155), Gable Green pad ( 101673, 5.95, p 156), Double Rectangle Punch (105088, 5.95, p 186), and Scallop circle punch (109043, 15.95, p 186), Dimensionals and Sticky strip adhesive.

Stamp the large flower in Bermuda Bay ink on the bottom right corner of the 5 3/4" x 2 3/4" piece of whisper white c/s. Randomly stamp the leaf in Gable Green ink around the flower, making sure to stamp high enough so the second flower does not cover the leaves. Stamp the medium flower in rich razzleberry ink on a piece of scrap white c/s; punch it out using the scallop circle punch. Stamp the small flower in melon mambo ink on a piece of scrap white cardstock and cut it out. Insert a rhinestone brad in the center of the rich razzleberry flower and a colored brad in the center of the melon mambo flower. Insert the double rectangle punch in from the top of the strip of white cardstock, all the way so you can see only a small amount of the corner next to the punch. Punch the holes. Lay a one inch strip of Sticky Strip adhesive vertically from the bottom edge of the white c/s upward in line with the punched holes at the top. Put a 1/4" square piece of sticky strip above the holes and below the top edge. Lay the 9" long piece of ribbon, starting at the bottom edge and going straight up to the top, cover the holes and attach to the sticky strip. You should have about 3" of ribbon above the top of the card. With any luck at all, I will post a detailed description of how to tie the bow tomorrow. Once the bow is tied you can attach the white cardstock to the Bermuda Bay cardstock. Attach the two flowers to the card front using dimensionals. Attach a piece of 5 7/8 x 5 7/8 piece of white cardstock, folded in half, to the back of the Bermuda Bay cardstock. Stamp the greeting in Melon Mambo ink.

Have you done anything with the printed window sheets? I'm not sure I "get" them.
