Finished Window Card

Earlier in the week I posted a Flower Soft window card topper card that I had no ideas as to how to finish it off and asked you all what you would do. I received a reply from Kelli at favor8favors that I thought would work wonderfully on this card. Vicki from stamped smiles also commented with a great idea that I am going to try on my next FS window card.

Thank you Kelli and Vicki for the ideas. AND thank you everyone who left sweet comments for me :o) your comments always make me smile :o)

Here is what I did with Kellis' ideas.

I added stickles around the curtains, pearls on curtains and window, a butterfly and stickles on the flowers to look like there is morning dew on them. I am not sure how well you can see the stickles on the flowers, but you can click on any of the photos to get a better look :o)

The layers are the same. The butterfly is hand made. I made a tutorial on how to make these here. They are much easier than they look.

For the inside I decided to use the other card topper sheet but only the first layer. I did add the stickles around the curtains and on the flowers on the inside too. I think if you click on the photo you might be able to see it. 
The sentiment is from my stand by SU set called Elegant Cheer. I just love this sentiment. I am not sure if it is retired, but I did not see it in the current catalog. Although the set comes with 6, I always use this one. The "Just a Note" makes the card usable for just about any occasion. This left plenty of room for a personal note.

I hope you like the finished card. I think Kellis' ideas were perfect for this one. I did think of adding pearls to the corners on the card, but decided not to. I am not sure why, I am still thinking it may have looked nice that way. I might go back and try it anyway. 

Have a super wonderful holiday weekend everyone!!!

OMGoodness!!! This is sooo amazing. The card turned out fabulously. What an honor it is that you were able to use the ideas I suggested. I am truly humbled nand blessed. I love the placement of the butterfly on the curtain and the window handles and the tie-backs...AWESOME!!!! I stickles on the curtains and the valance really makes them stand out against the garden seen. And I love the idea of the morning dew on the flowers, I will have to try that. Your talent always amazes me!
