Two by Two, Side by Side

This may be my last card for a week or so. My four and six year old grandchildren will be coming for a visit this week (without parents) so I'll be a busy bee keeping them entertained. Their mom told me they had the best time on their last visit and talked about it from the time they got home until she made them go to sleep that night. I'm so happy to hear that and hope it will be the same this time. She also thanked us for being wonderful grandparents. How super is that!

I've made this card for the Hope You Can Cling To challenges going on this month at Splitcoaststampers.  This challenge, HYCCT1405, is Two by Two, Side by Side. Use some element/s in twos. Mine are the two hydrangea images. They aren't side by side but I think they will be o.k.

The card is supposed to use pink and purple. I did the alcohol marker marbling technique to show inside the window. But, as it turned out, the purple hardly shows. I think you can see just a touch of it. I added some purple gemstones so I could sneak into the challenge. :-)
