Through The Window

Today's card is one requested by a friend at work - a 'Happy New Home' card for her parents.

I bought some die-cut window frames and boxes a while ago at a craft fair and they have been sitting unloved in a bits and bobs box - this seemed the ideal opportunity to use them. I used a brick pattern I found via Google as the background and coloured this with pro-markers. I then 'built up' the window using a grey pice of card for 'inside' the house and a cut doily for the curtains.

The flower box was decorated using punched leaves in various shades of green and some pink gems shaped as flowers that I've had for years. Finally, I added the sun shade and printed a greeting using Copperplate Gothic font.

I'm entering this into the challenges at:
