(Unexpected) Window Card

Happy Thanksgiving Monday! And I don't even have a Fall card to share with you today, but I think you'll enjoy this card.
So, where's the window you ask? Hold your horses, that's the unexpected part!
Can you handle the suspense???
All together now......(rhymes with 'who') OOOoooooooo. There it is!!!
Ta-da. Isn't that cool? Or, what's the 'in' word these days.....rad?
Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"

Now on to the good stuff...the instructions.
Cut a CS piece 5.5" x 12".
Score at 4.25", then at 7.75" , and then at 11.25".
Fold on the score lines, alternating Valley and Mountain folds.
Cut another piece of CS 4.25" x 5.5".
Glue this piece to the Tab.
Glue the middle sections together and punch a window.
Embellish away.
I saw a card similar to this in a Cardmaker Magazine from May '07, pg. 48. They had different dimensions but I wanted a regular-sized card, so I came up with new measurements.
Here's the one side of my card:
Here's what it looks like on the other side of the flap:
I used the Rock & Roll Technique for the flowers on the inside of the card.
(Rock & Roll Technique--Ink your stamp in a light colour, without stamping, roll the edges of the stamp in a darker colour, stamp on your paper.)
