Birthday Wishes!

Here is my take on this week's sketch at the Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge:
My first plan was to make it a true window window-card seen from the outside. I was going to have buttons for nails in the corners and a little curtain in the window and flowers on a window sill. But then when I tried to add the sentiment, and the curtain and the flowers it just covered the scene too much so I decided to leave it like this. Instead I made a second card where I moved the sentiment and flipped the sketch so I could use the curtain and I am now showing that for the waltz tomorrow instead.
All the stamps I've used are from Teeny Trees - A true favorite!!!

A little typing mishap on the first comment....

Oh my goodness! I absolutely love this card! You created such depth with your shading that I thought it was a window card until I looked closer. Wow, you're a Top Mouse shoo-in.

Oh Karin, this is sooo pretty! I love the window scene and the colors and twine you chose go so perfectly with the theme of the card! Can't wait to see the other card you made for the waltz tomorrow! Thanks so much for playing with us at WMSC this week!

This card is breath-taking! I just discovered Waltzingmouse {I know, where have I been?} and these trees were some of my very favorites. You've definitely sold me on them!
