Mirrors & Windows

I honestly think that this particular card has taken me the longest, of ANY card I've made, to create!  There's so many little details, but I'm so excited with how it turned out!  And the time was worth it as I will be sending this one to my oldest stepdaughter, who will be walking in commencement ceremonies in June for her MASTER'S degree (that she got despite having SEVEN kids at home - two of which were twins born during her FINAL semester!).  LOL - I had nothing to do with it, but I'm still going to brag about her!
