Through a window

The challenge on 365 cards today is to have a card with a window on it. I have taken this literally as I have been dying to work with the diecuts I got from Die cut dreams. I haven't got a die cutting machine (freak I hear you all cry!) so I bought some from Susie and this is my first go at playing with them. I am disappointed the picture doesn't show some lovely silver and black gingham paper I used to replicate a blind at the window of the door.
I also put some "dovecraft" paper inside the door to make it look like it is the inside of the shop - see right.
I am also entering this over on the Paperplay challenge - which someone kindly suggested this card fits, as the theme is fashion.

Great card, Linby - I love the idea of making a fashion boutique - the window, shop awning and door are just fab.

Thanks for joining us on PaperPlay.
