Birthday Card with Roses

One of the challenges that I look forward to each week is the one at Joan's Gardens. She has the most unique challenges. This week, she requires:
• Window Top Card ( an opening in the top of the card with the design on the inside) • Add three colors of flowers for the focal point. • A Birthday card
I combined this with other challenges. I found my inspiration from a patterned paper from Webster's Pages that I received from Joan's. I cut the window with Spellbinders Blossom die in the front of the card...layered the pattern over the ivory card base before cutting . Cut a frame of the ivory CS for the outside and inside of the opening. Made 3 roses of different colors using Heartfelt Creations Grandiflora Rose stamps. Shaped flowers and added some glitter and finished with glitter domes in centers. Cut branches with leaves and arranged these with roses on the inside of card. Finished outside with sentiment and some green rhinestones.
