New Home

I really like this window die, but need to learn how to use it if the image is not quite the right size.  This is a bit too narrow as well as too long.  So I used a bit of the Martha Stewart trellis punch to create an edging - originally I thought of it as being like a fence around the fields - after I uploaded the card I realized I should have made curtains or drapes for the window!  Then, I ask you to use some imagination as I took liberties, and put some of the grapes and leaves on the window sill. This was also kind of a last minute thought.  Let me know what you think.
