Christmas Window

There is something special about the house when it is all decorated for the holidays.  Everything looks a little better, a bit fuller, more complete.  I enjoyed creating this card just like I was decorating my home!

I created little curtains for the window and then set about making flowers and foliage for the window box.

I used several punches to create the flower display.  I manipulated the blossoms and layered them to get the look I wanted.  Stickles gave the flower centers a bit of bling!

Of course there had to be snow outside at this time of year. So I embossed the background paper to create the look of "snow".

I hope this time of preparing for the holidays is finding you well and happy!
