Window Shopping 2 - SBDS

Good evening everyone hope you are all looking forward to a good weekend. Have to admit I have had a bug for the past couple of days, weird one with flu like symptoms, still a bit achy but  I'm sure I will be over it soon.
Thought I would share a card my friend requested for her sister's birthday. She loved the original one I did but there wasn't room to put a sentiment on it.  So even though I hate making the same card twice I agreed to do it.
It may be similar to the first but I did something new with this one and made a 'magic card'. I found the link on Pat's blog for how to make it and the link to Marianne Skjelstad's Magic card  instructions by Tracey are here

Oooo just realised the camera has changed the colour of the mount card.... it really is sage green irl.  Good job I'm not entering it for any challenges.

This one does look a little more like the real colour, well the inside does.   I just thought I would show it and say what an interesting one it is to try.  I also managed to use my new SP dies decorative labels 8. Thanks Pat for the inspiration.

Thanks for looking
