The eyes are the windows to the soul

 This week, Cindy chose WINDOWS as our theme on SPA... I wanted to do somthing a bit different so i made my postcard out of a double piece of card and cut the front out to make the window. Added acetate and then created my scenic postcard inside. The window opens and closes and i made a closure so it can be kept closed
