A Flower for All Seasons - Thanks - Create with Connie & Mary

Create Sketches Portrait-010
Today the temperature is 11 degrees C. - positively tropical!  It's so nice to be able to go out and not bundle up with a heavy coat, hat, mitts and boots.  All the snow is gone, and the tulips are coming up fast.  Before we know it they'll be blooming.  I have some yellow ones with orange centers in the front garden, and this is what inspired this card.  I also used a window pane for the first time.  It was a bit challenging!
To make this card, I actually turned the sketch on its side.  I did that because I cut the designer paper the wrong way. The card is based on the sketch challenge with Connie & Mary here
At the side is the sketch. Below is my card.

Oooh, this is really cute! I couldn't see the Beveled Windowpane on the linky photo on the Create with Connie and Mary page. - I love it! It fits the stamp image so nice!

This is a great card! I love how you used the window pane for the focal point and then still added the scallop behind it! Clever!! Thanks for joining us this week at Create with Connie and Mary!

That stamp looks like it was made for the windowpanes - what a lovely design. Great job on the CCMC challenge this week.
