March 2020 Week 4 or Twelfth Week for 52 CCT blog with technique challenge of a window

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! This particular post shows my love for mixing colors and patterns and having lots of layers. With the 12th of 52 weeks that means there are 40 weeks left in 2020. The new challenge week follows our rotation and Week 4 focuses on the technique of window(s). The green tinted and gold edged window frame is part of old stash 1-2 years old. 52 Christmas Card Throwdown blog has helped me to use stock I recently purchased to participate in this blog's design team as well as old stash. More on the comparison of old and new a bit later in the posting.

Holly Jolly=

Some design and supply notes:
a. the window frame= I forget who the manufacturer is; I received it in a big bargain box purchase almost 2 years ago from the website Peachy Cheap.
b. The barn siding patterned paper, die-cuts (cluster, pinecone, holly, snowman, and pine 'leaf'), and the multi-floral scenery patterned paper are from "Cottage Christmas" collection from Fancy Pants.
c. Charcoal gray and green cardstocks are Astrobrights/Neenah.
d. other embellishments are 3 colors of gems, silver glitter paint pen, and a dark green marker are old stash
e. the window scene were lifted off the background cardstock with the help of 8 round foam adhesive dots
f. the damask patterned paper is just used to block out the scanner light of the printer
g. the die-cut on the L corner was slit between 2 leaves so that I could nestled part of it up and over the corner of the window
h. the die-cut on the upper R corner is on the window frame which is up higher than the holly and the pine leaf due to the foam adhesive dots lifting up the window frame.

Here's a pic of the card angled as it sits on top of the printer=
