Window with a View...

365 Cards, Day 262, Setting a Scene sounded like fun...my DD, Kim, is the designer for this challenge...she said, "MOM, DO IT!"  So I did (I always do what she tells me to do [cough, cough].  Knew what I wanted to do but it took several attempts to get it there. So this is what I ended up with...

Kim and I had shopped at Garden Ridge a couple years ago and found a huge 'getting rid of all card making supplies' sale. We both bought the window front panel you see. I found mine, she didn't! The tree inside is origami made with the whole set of nestie scallop squares. It could be more 3-D, but I flattened them by embossing with the dotted Swiss cuttlebug folder. If you enlarge the front picture you'll be able to see the teeny, tiny bumps!  I used cardboard for the back, figured I needed something heavier than card stock, and wrapped it with the DP to cover the edges.

I'm entering this bigger than normal sized card in the following challenges:

1. 365 Cards, Day 262 - window card, setting a scene
2. If the Shoe Fits, Scrap It - tickle me with tinsel, make it shine!
3. Color Throw Down - the colors, pear pizzazz, cajun craze and earl espresso
4. Crafty Creations - finish the inside of the card
