Two challenge cards

This is a card for the challenge at Bah! Humbug who want us to use a window this week. I printed the the window scene from the Crafters Companion Winter Tales CD, I wanted to do the A6 version as I haven't done this particular project before and like to do a small version for first times. I cut out the various pieces, made the windows and stuck them to the frame, I used the snowflake embossing folder on some shiny card to put in the window, I also printed a sheet of greetings and I used one of them for the inside of the window. I am pleased with how it has turned out especially for a first attempt, I think I will make the bigger version as well now I know how it's done.

This card is for Designed 2 Delight drawn by the lovely Faith, this is a progressive challenge and this week the Teddy image is free, all you have to do is make a card using him, post it on Faith's blog and she will send you the next image free of charge by email so why not join us?
I am also doing the challenge on Double Delight who have given us a sketch this week. I made the card digitally this time following the sketch, I printed out the lovely bear and coloured him using my promarkers. I was trying to make him look furry but I'm not sure how successful that was but practise makes perfect as the saying goes.

Your window card is fabulous. I especially like how the inside of the openings have been decorated with window panes too!
