Looking through the window

Good morning friends and a happy Tuesday to you all,
Onbly 8 more sleeps till we leave on our holiday, but need to get 16 more days of work done....that's what it feel like.LOL....
As promised last week here is another of the cards made during the class I attended. It is actually a very easy and simple card to put together.
Started off with stamping the flowers using small tapestry stamps onto cream cardstock and inking all the edges.
I used a Marianne Design die for my window. It is actually a lantern die and I cut the top piece of to make it into a window. Put a sheet of acetate behind this.
The Christmas tree is from a Cuttlebug die, decorated with some bling, cut a curtain and stamped that as well.
The window was then mounted on 3D foam pads, and all was done.
I love this Marainne die, and would like to make some more windows, with different images.
Thanks for popping in and have a wonderful week. Mine is very busy as we are also having to visit with many friends and family  before we leave.
Take care, have fun and see you soon.

I clicked on the Marianne Designs image you have on your blog sidebar and was hoping it would take me to her site so I could ck out the dies like the lantern die you used for the window but it did not take me to her site.
