A Thank You card which also fits some challenges!

Hi all,
My mum asked me to make her a Thank You card. She has recently had some new curtains made and fitted and the guy was soooo helpful and efficient she wanted to send a thank you card.  Make me something with a window on it or something - you know the sort of thing???????????  Well, trawled through my digi images - NOWT!  Trawled through my rubber images - NOWT!!  OMG!! What to do??
TING!!!  Decided to draw a window shape on the card and cut out the panes of glass. 
Added a bit of lace behind the window and tried to make it look like a French blind by folding the lace up on itself in three places.  Then "made" a vase and added some punched flowers and put it in the window. 
Added a piece of card which I sponged with a brown ink as a background. 
Then I decided to use some Tapestry Stamps I've had for a while and do a display around the window, got carried away and made a swirl under the window and then stamped a Thank You into one of the white spaces.
I quite like the finished article and I hope my Mum will too.
I will also enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Cardmakers - Inky Fingers (used chalk ink pads to make the swirl and round the window and sponged an ink background behind the window)
Magical Crafts - Flower Power
Corrosive Challenge Blog - Flowers, flowers,flowers
