Cut a 6" decorative panel from the paper collection.  Stamp the window to the left of center, and cut away the opening around the curtains.  Color with Copic markers.  Add Stickles to the flowers.  Make a border of Stickles around the 6" square. Let dry.  Stamp the Lady Rosalie image onto Cryogen White paper, color with Copics and hand trim.  Apply in front of the window with foam adhesives. Stamp, cut and shape a mix of flowers using the Majestic Morning Background and the  Vintage Morning Background stamp sets.  Color using mists.   Stamp the leaves and cut with the corresponding die.  Nestle the leaves with the flowers.  Add bling to finish the design. Cut an opening on the front of the cardstock base, to line up with the window opening (use a simple die or hand cut).  Adhere the card front to the base.

Through Rain or Shine

Well...with this weather, perhaps my card should be through snow or shine!  Hopefully, this big snow that we are expecting over the next few days will be the last!  Anyhow - I was home today and decided to play along with the Unity {Be Inspired} Challenge. 
You can use the sketch, the inspiration/color board or both.  I loved the vintage colors on this one - so that's what I went with. 

Here was the inspiration.  Seriously, those colors just make me happy.

And here are a couple of detail shots.
