Jeff & Katie - New Home Card

This card is for a friend of my son's who he has known since  kindergarten.  He is a wonderful boy and he feels like a second son to us.....Time passes, they grow, meet lovey ladies, fall in love and before you know it , one of them (my son's friend and his love) are off looking for a home. They find one they they think is right and are due to move in early December. Hoping to get a head start on things ( at a stamping play date  with a friend  yesterday) we decided to get the 'move in' card made . This is my result.  I have included two pictures just to show the crystal effects on the windows as it did not show up in the first picture.
 Note:  Inside the card I have stamped 'Congratulations on your new Home'
