Through the Window

 Did I go into panic mode when I saw just what
52CCT had for this weeks challenge.
Making a window as a focal point is not the sort of thing
I would normally do.
After the panic settled I began to think rational about it
and this is the result.

I learnt a very valuable lesson too.
I thought I would be very clever when I cut out the paper lace
by adding double side Jac paper to the back before I cut it out.
I spent a good half an hour getting out all those tiny pieces
that then stuck to my hands and the carpet but 
refused to go into the rubbish bin.
I gave up and left the 2 top rows of dots in
but I quite like that anyway.
The picture is a freebe that I got from Completely Christmas.
Did think about putting a white Happy Christmas on it
but decided it was not a good idea
as I really like it just as it is.

Am entering this in:

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.
