Sassy Flower Window Card

Hi this is Lori and I am a Sassy Guest Designer today!! Sheila is famous for her Window Cards, so I thought I would make one for her blog. Usually when I make cards, I make them two at a time ~ so I guess I made two for her blog!!
I started out with some fabulous paper that I found.  This is an 8x8 stack called The Colorful Life and each page looks like a piece of art!!

I took this piece of paper from the pad, and added a sheet of music paper from Immortal Love, and a piece of blue from my Shimmer Stack.

I welded this frame and shadow from Gypsy Wanderings together to form a card (3.95h). I took a flower from Mother's Day Bouquet (3.08h) and used Hide Contour to hide the inside cuts. Then I welded the flower into the frame.

I copy and pasted (before I hid the inner cuts) the large flower twice. I added another flower in two sizes (1.59h and 1.35h).

I wanted a liner for the card, so I opened a Layer 2 and copied the shadow of the frame. I made it a little smaller than the card (3.71h).

 I cut out the pieces and used my Martha Stewart Score Board to score the card in half (4 inches).

I used Vintage Photo and Fired Brick to ink the flower pieces.
I crumpled the flowers a little for some texture and added a pearl to the center of the flower. I used glue dots to piece the flowers together.

I used one of Joy's Life All Around Sentiment stamps for the inside of the cards.
Here is the second card.  I switched the card and liner for a different look.

I had fun making these window cards Sassy Style!

Thank you Sheila for sharing my project on your blog today!!!
