Grand Madison Window

I'm not sure about this card - I think it looks better IRL than in the photo - not sure why, probably my lack of photographic skills.

Anyway, I love this Grand Madison Window die from Poppystamps (the company that makes Memory Box dies). It's so versatile and can be used in lots of different way, so expect to see it used a lot over the coming months.  Can't wait to do some Christmas scenes with it!

For the brick wall background I used a 'That Special Touch' mask.  The paper for the curtains was just some scrap I had in my stash and I put it through my paper crimper to give the look of folds.  The flowers and branches are a variety of punches I have gathered over the years and not used much so I've been pleased to put them to some use at last.  I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment (HOTP) onto an oval Nestie and mounted that onto a scalloped oval.  

Hope you have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.
