MC Mar/11 - Window - Sheltering Tree

I really like the way this card turned out... I seem to say that a lot. Sheesh

I was in a mood to hand color something, so used one of my Dover sample images, manipulated it and then colored it with Prisma colors. Then decided to keep the image on the inside and make a window looking out at the spring view of a bird sheltered in a tree. I wonder if I'm going to have a bird's nest there...

I'm also using one of Suzanne's Quote mark Friendship rubber stamps (Quietfire Design).

Anyway to see more details and descriptions and close ups of the buttons and other details, just click on card image. Enjoy.

And it fits for a few challenges:
