Oh, my... what a pretty and creative card Petra. Love your take on the sketch. That half moon shape window looks wonderful with the leaves. I will have to remember this design, because it looks awesome.

This is such a clever use of the circle die, and love the neutral shadow peeking from the inside. The sepia shades of the pretty leaves look fantastic with the cooler grey. Love this design! TFS & Happy wkend. Hugs
