It's still May 5, so here goes! Grin

Joy! Joy! Joy! Well, sort of. This is my before:

And this is my after (I took out the glass for the shot so it wouldn't reflect the flash), which I'm calling, oh-so-originally, "Through the Looking Glass":

I was originally going to leave more of the original design in -- I actually did pull off the word "JOY" and cut the letters into what I think are prettier shapes -- but then the landscape thing took over my brain and now the text doesn't seem to fit anywhere. I'll probably keep poking at this and adding more embellishment as time passes ... It's that sort of fairy-tale-esque frame, and the more filigree, the better, right? Wink

Whew! I finished a challenge and nobody made me do it! Yes!

Ahhh, this is pretty - and so serene.... You did a good job.  This is the view I'd want from any window in my house.... I especially like the bird and the foam on the waves... Also, nice detail on the outer frame!  Pretty!
