BBTB2/Window To My World

Happy Monday and welcome to my BBTB2 post for this week's challenge from our new design team sister, Brenda.  She asked us to design with the theme "Window to my World".... My card was designed from the French Manor cartridge which was a gift a while back from my dear friend and DT sis, Sandi.  I love this cartridge.  I chose the window cut with the pretty scroll work on page 36, keypad #9.  I added some frosted paper behind the extra cut of windows...and I added some little gold pearls for the handles and decor.  On the corners you will see some of my "card candy" which was a gift from my friend Pat. The inside of the card says "A warm hello"... 


I hope you've taken a look at the DT's offerings because their creations are always full of inspiration.  Please join us on this challenge.  Just be sure to read our rules at the top of our BBTB2 blog site...  We ask that you please disable the word verification but each week we encounter WV and some of us simply cannot leave a comment to thank you for joining our challenge. As a blog administration (you) you will not be able to see that WV is enabled unless you go to your blog settings.  There is an option to disable the WV and we encourage to please consider it.  I cannot leave a comment otherwise.
Thanks for visiting, and I hope you all  have a wonderful week.

Beautiful card Carole! I love this window, so fancy and pretty, I also love that you put vellum on the windows, makes a viewer wonder what's inside that window. I also love the embellishments you used, really sets the card off. So needless to say I loved your take on my challenge!! hugs Bren

This is such a gorgeous window. It looks so realistic with the frosted paper behind. I just want to grab the window and open it to see what is on the other side. LOL
