Window Box

I have to tell ya, I am addicted to dies right now....
there are so many out there to choose from....
I purchased my window die and window box die early this summer....
I can't believe it is the first I have used it....
both dies are from Memory Box....
the awning is a newer one I just got from Savvy....

I love how it pretty much fits the window....
I added screen behind my window....
punched a bunch of flowers and my bird with MS punches...

I did this card to enter in the challenge at Joan's Gardens
to make flowers your focal point....
use red and black....
use an embossing folder....
add a stamped or die cut border at the bottom
all my dies used can be purchased from Joan's Gardens....

I am also entering this into The Catered Crop
to use WHITE somewhere.....
have to say, I LOVE how this turned out!!!

Now I have to share a pic of my "baby" Nellie....
her birthday is today and she is 7....
I had to get on youtube and play her the Carpenters song "Close To You"....
I always sing the part to her "On the day you were born, the angels got together"
heeheehee...am I crazy or what!!!!!
