Hydrangea Window Card - a CASE

I saw this card on Pinterest - made by Nancy Amato - and just loved it.  So, I partially CASED this card using a lot of her elements, but putting some of my own in.

I started by stamping the image of the Hydrangea from the Best of Flowers stamp set, using Black Stazon, onto Whisper White card stock.  The image was coloured with SU markers and then die cut using the Windows framelits.  Before removing the framelit, I took a stencil brush and stenciled all the way around the die cut with Crumb Cake ink.  A second, larger Windows Framelit was die cut, and the edges stenciled in the same way.  The two die cuts were adhered together using dimensionals.  Dazzling details was added to the flowers.

Using the Beautiful Wings sizzlet die, two butterflies were die cut in Marina Mist, and attached on either side of the flower with a glue dot.  Some rhinestones were placed on the bodies of the butterflies.

A striped piece of Birds of a Feather DSP was made into a banner and attached to the bottom of the window.

Using Crumb Cake seam binding, I made a bow and attached an Antique brad to the center.  This was attached at the junction of the banner and the window.

The image unit was attached to a crumb cake layer that had been embossed with the Honeycomb folder.  All edges were sponged with Crumb Cake ink.  I also sponged over the entire embossed surface.
This embossed layer was attached to a Whisper White layer, which was attached to the Marina Mist card base.
