Challenge: Card from a Sketch IV

Wow - it's been a whole week since I've posted! I'm currently in the prairies visiting my husband and don't have as much time to play. This week's challenge at A Crafty Little Place's  was inspired by a childhood window.

I thought I would try to mimic the layers and geometry as much as possible and this is what I came up with. Interestingly enough I didn't use my cricut at all to make the card - just a stamp set I got at Micheal's.

I feel like it still needs a little something, ribbon maybe? In retrospect, it would have been cool to do a trifold or have each "window" open to reveal an image or message -an idea for next time!

Hi Anne! I think without a ribbon is just delightful, this owl takes center stage. ;)Wonderful papers you've paired with it, I love the edges! And brilliant idea to do a window with this sketch next time - I love that idea! Thank you so much for joining us at ACLP this week.
