Fresh Flowers Window Box

I decided to use my Fresh Flowers set from Taylored Expressions for this week's sketch challenge on Splitcoast, SC225. I love how versatile this set is. 

I started by stamping the window box and flowers onto Choice Buttercream with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then I stamped a few flowers again so I could cut them out. The flowers are coloured with copics and I added some Stickles to the centers. 

For the window box, I stamped it onto rust cardstock then ran it through my Forest Branches Cuttlebug folder so it would look like wood. All the cardstock I used, both patterned papers and solid colours are included in the April Key Ingredients, as well as the ribbon and the pretty rhinestone flower. 

This card came together so quickly with the supplies all coordinated for me. I decided not to add a sentiment though so I can use this card for just about any occasion.

Thanks for stopping by!

That's some gorgeous DP you've got going in this card Karen and you colored those flowers just perfect to match it! I love how you did the flowerbox with the CB folder. This one jumped off the blog follower window at me:))
