Rustic Window Box

Hey crafty peeps!  Back again with another Stamping Bella card.  I have used  Rustic Window Box by Mo Manning.  It comes with a sentiment "the earth laughs in flowers" ... but I used the sentiment "thinking of you" from Matilda on her Swing

I lightly used my BG0000 around the window panes and added Glossy Accents.  It looks & feels really cool! 

I added a bit of zigzag sewing, liquid pearls to the flower centers & propped up the different layers.  Other then that, no bells or whistles... just wanted to keep it simple.

Left the inside blank to use as a note card:

Gorgeous Carla- I love the simplicity of this, and your wood grain paper, really cool. And those window panes with the glossy accents - love them!

I love your shiny windows :) The flowers look sweet too, with all those little pearls. Very pretty!

Lovely - the "barn board" paper, the zig-zag and those windows! So clean and shiny!! Beautiful shading off the sides of the window too - that soft brown colour - which copic did you use for that please?

Your artwork amazes me. The distressed wood DP is the perfect backdrop for the window image but I'm sure you already knew that is would work perfectly. Just lovely.
