Flowers Through the Window

I have made this simple flower and window card for the Make it Monday Challenge  (#91) .  I used the new Grand Madison Window die for the window frame and a flower rubber stamp called Upsy Daisy that I stamped in dark blue pigment ink and embossed with a sparkling clear embossing powder. I added a couple of butterflies, a ribbon  and the card was completed. 
I am also submitting this card for the Come and Get it Challenges window card challenge.
