Window Box

I am the one who is blessed - in so many ways!  One of the blessings has been to score a few great wins recently in challenges!  Most recently (yesterday, in fact) I received two Cheery Lynn dies I was able to select - the Shuttered window with flower box, and the Tiny flower kit.  The flower die cuts 32 varied shapes and sizes - from about 1/4 to 5/8 inch or so.  I cut mine in white, pink and red this time - and will have enough for several cards.  I filled in with the Cheery Lynn branch die - cut into small bits, and sprinkled some glitter on the flowers.  The window cuts in 5 pieces so could be used separately.  I applied the edges direct to a Sepia ink pad to create a bit more dimension.  I bit of gold, scalloped, velvet ribbon and brick embossing complete the exterior.    For the interior I printed a pre-colored Dearie Doll image in a very small format - you can see the cat but the mice on the chair are a bit harder to notice.  I found a bit of DP for the wall paper.  Next time I might cut the image and put it on a wooden bg. 
As I mentioned in an earlier post, we no longer have mothers with us to honor, but this card would be for any special woman.  I used a portion of a sentiment from Our Daily Bread.
