A Window on Spring

I am still having a ball playing with squares!! Thanks for the great challenge, Angela.

This week I have been working on a card with a window scene for the Texas Gulf Coast Paper Crafters' Shoebox Swap in Brazoria this coming Saturday. I had so much fun with that card, that I decided to design one for Kitchen Sink Monday. My TGCPC card has to be able to be completed in 10 minutes. This one took a little extra time!  I hope you like it!
