Iris Window card

I found this cool card at CraftsUPrint - a window card with a popup interior that goes through the window.  My print is terrible at printing color (red doesn't print well), so I touched it up a little with my markers, but the basic design is the one in the kit.  This is how it looks folded flat:
I used a nestie die to cut a window and frame, rather than handcut it from the template.  The floral panel is a scrap from a previous printing (I was trying to resize it to fit a standard US card size (most of the cards on that site are bigger).  This is how it looks open:
Lots of fussy cutting, but it is not as hard as it looks.  I'm going to have to buy some duplex paper if I'm going to make more of these.

Challenges:
Clearly Inspired - colors (that blue is really purple)
Delightful Challenges - diecut
Incy Wincy - flowers
Crazy Challenge - flowers
Sparkles Forum - new craft item (digital kit to make the card)

OK this is just incredible. The iris coloring is fantastic and the card design lives up to the level of the coloring. What a great card. Now be honest ... how long did it take?

Definitely worth the time!
