View from the Window on a Snowy Day

Hello!  Looking from the inside out is the theme of this card. My card today is a bit unusual but I had to go a bit out of the box to meet the Challenge at Joan's Gardens this week. Her challenge is to use any colors,  window, trees, and a product from Joan's Gardens. The tricky part was that I have no window dies so I had to make up my window with rectangle dies and to make it look more like a window, I fashioned curtains and a valence with pleated and embossed paper. I wall-papered the room with a floral print paper and used a wood grain print for the floor.  Since the window looks to an outside view I created a winter scene that I stamped in black ink and colored with pencils.  I hope the trees in the scene are enough to cover the required tree element. The Stampendous stamp "Snowy Postcard" is from Joan's Gardens that I recently won. Only a portion of the stamp is shown through the window. My card turned out a bit on the clean and simple style.

Theresa, what a great card. When I was thinking about the requirements for the challenge , I said to myself..what if they don't have a window die, then I thought they can make a window. And, you certainly did. I love everything about this from the curtains, valance, wallpaper and the beautiful scene outside. Great job!!!
Thanks for joining us at Joan's Gardens for our weekly challenge.
