MIM #299 Sentiment windows

Finally participating in another MIM.
When I watched Dawn create her window card I started to think about a concept for my card when my eyes fell on one of the many dies I have never used before. The `pinked edge die´ in this case.
I came up with the idea to use all of the frames and create my window by cutting out some of the leaves....
So at first I die cut the pinked window out of my card base, then covered the back with black cardstock. Next I cut out a rectangle (out of a luxe gold adhesive sheet). This rectangle had the same size as the leafy rectangle piece. I stuck it onto the middle of the black cardstock - then die cut the leaves.
Next I cut away 2 leaves so I had room for my sentiment (from `a little inspiration´) to stamp.
I wasn`t happy with the open space I had created yet didn`t want to change the `frame´. So I decided to stick one of the leaves above the sentiment to give it a more complete look.
And that`s my card :-)

Here`s a closer look at all the shine you get with this gorgeous gold paper:

And the inside of the card with one of the leaves I had cut out to create the window:
