Scene Peek on a Summer's Day

Over the weekend I played with my own take on a single-layer card.  I wanted it to be different so I created a window where you could catch a peek at the scene behind the focal image. 

As the summer fades into memory, I wanted one last seaside scene to send it off.  I started with the little boy from RRD's Beach Babes in the foreground (front of the card) and used one of my circle cutting templates to draw a circle around him.  After coloring him in with copics, I cut out all the "white space" in the circle revealing  the inside panel of the card.

Using the grid on my cutting mat, I was able to figure out where to place the inside scene which consisted of the sailboat and the birds from the same plate.  I decided to make it a sunset sky to really set it off.  When you stand the card up, you really get a feeling of depth as the boy stands looking out over the sea.

I left the edges of my "scene" very irregular as if the sky and ocean just fade into the card itself.

I've entered this card into the following challenges:
