LIM week 21 sketch

The new challenge for week 21 at Less is more is a sketch. Above you can view my take on it. I decided to cut holes in the card and make it like a train window with a scene in the back. The paper on the top of the card is G45 and the image of the scene is from my US Artquest Napkin collage kit. the edges of the windows are foiled with silver. The sentiment is from Creative Expressions Vintage Aviation set. I got scared when I first stamped it on because I thought I doubled part of the image until I looked and that is the way the stamp is....Phew.... The picture really does not show the depth but I liked the way the flash made the windows glisten.
Here is a shot of the scenery when you open the card.
