Great idea to use the die and make it look like an old window. Fantastic card Benzi.

Vicky Gould said...

The way you colored your window frame reminds me of an old beach house in need of some fresh paint due to salt air. Real nice, Brenda.

Love the vintage look of your window. I would love to look out a window and see the ocean and lighthouse. Not every day, because I don't want to move, but a vacation to see it would be nice.
