Window Chick

 While having a bit of a sort out in the craft room I came across a box of miscellaneous card blanks, most of which I've had for a long time and which I decided should be used up before I think about buying any more.  There were a few left over from a pack of three-fold cards where the centre layer has windows cut out for mounting maybe cross stitched pieces or even Iris Folding (remember that??).  Anyway what I did was cut one of the cards into three, then die cut the window panel to a suitable size to fit my regular card blanks.   For this one I've stamped and die cut various chick related elements and built up a little scene in and around the four apertures, layered it onto a piece of green striped DSP to make what I think is quite a fun card.  I must say cutting and assembling the sweetcorn is a tad on the fiddly side but I don't mind doing that sort of thing and it certainly passes the time quickly.
