Window Box - MUSE Challenge

I have the Muse Challenge blog in my reading list and check it out regularly. Until this week I've just lurked and admired, but when I saw the gorgeous card this week created by Therese Calvrid, with all the detailed flowers it brought to mind this window die that I bought more than a year ago and never used. I'd seen the die used with the companion window box (which I didn't buy) full of pretty, little flowers and that's what convinced me I had to have it.





I don't have a lot of small flowers punches and unpacking and setting up the Cameo was going to take more time then I had so I relied on the BoHo Blossoms punch from Stampin Up and improvised my leaves freehand. This took quite a bit if time to piece together but I'm happy with the result and glad I saw the challenge card that reminded me I had this in the first place.

Happy Crafting!

The window and flower box are a great idea for the MUSE challenge! I also really like the embossed background and pretty paper behind the window. Beautiful!

Paula,

The Boho blossoms are great for the window box! Isn't it funny how long it takes to do the "flower arrangement"? Lovely card;)
