Flowers Around My Window.

A new challenge has started over on the Butterfly Challenge.
So a window of some description either looking into or out of somewhere on your card/project and the colour to use is Rose + of course your butterfly. The colour can be anywhere you choose.
Here is my inspiration for you.
I created a brick wall effect using my Imagination Crafts Wall stencil and embossing mat . The window is spellbinders Window one S2-015 which I first cut out using a stone coloured card stock.
I actually cut two, one to go inside to neaten the apperture cut into the card base and to hide the tape on the acetate which I stuck inside the one attached to the brickwall.  I penciled round the inside of the window frame and cut a corresponding hole in the brickwall and the card base and then built the window. The flowers and vine were created from lots of offcuts of cardstock and made using  Cheery Lynn Designs Mini Fanciful flourish B117S, Memory Box Fancy blossoms 98312 and Marianne Design CR1210 which is the ruffled flower and various extra leaves.  The  Rose butterflies are Su's Beautiful Wings.  The sentiment is a Britannia word die.

I applied liquid pearls in several colours to  the centres of the flowers. I have turned the card slightly at angle and you can just see the shimmer from them.

Truly delightful and so pretty!! I am charmed by the delicate blossoms on the lovely vines. How clever to have a second window die-cut inside the card, also, to hide the adhesive for the acetate panes. The textured brick wall is perfect and I love the shimmer of pearly centers you put in the flowers. Beautiful card which will be loved and appreciated by the lucky recipient!!
