Rustic Window Box

Hi, Everyone!
For today's card I used a image by Mo Manning called Rustic Window Box which is available at 7 Kids College Fund.  This image was so cool. It has Vintage/Tuscan look to it. It reminded of my grandma's house. She had window box just like this! This image is so perfect for a-lot of things. Welcome to neighborhood, good luck on your new home etc. For 2 years I wanted to make an awning.for a card. Then I ran across Linda blogg. I emailed her she told me she used the Paper Trey Ink Medium Scallop Border Die to make the awning. Awesome Right?? This is how long I had this Scallop border die.  I figured all the other details  from there! So When I saw that  7 Kids College Fund sold the stamp! I was on it! I was thinking Awning! LOL. Oh as for the black back drop! Hubby tells me it should be a darker color all the time. He was right this time. The white back drop just did not do justice for the card. Thanks honey!
