Looking through the Window - Mother's Day card

Today I bring to you a Mother's Day card I created for my mother-in-law.  During the end of December my mother-in-law had made this statement on her facebook page, "So strange!!! I was looking out my kitchen window this morning thinking about Joe (her deceased husband) when this yellow butterfly flew on my deck and hoovered in front of the window a little while then flew away...Maybe it was telling me that I will be okay and next year will be a better one for me!!!!! I hope so anyway...."  Now this might not sound strange to some of you but since she lives on the east coast, seeing a butterfly in December is very strange.  Ever since that day I knew I wanted to create a window card for her...and this is what I came up with.

I used these items to create this card:
  • Design Studio
  • Locker Talk Cricut cartridge - for the window card***I know totally not expected!!!
  • George and Basic Shapes Cricut cartridge - for the square cut for the window
  • Indie Art Cricut cartridge - the butterfly
  • Cuttlebug
  • Swiss Dots embossing folder
  • Studio G glitter glue
  • foam squares
  • Stampin' Up Ribbon and lace - for the curtain effect
  • Glue Gun - to attach the lace to the ribbon
  • Clear Craft Plastic - for the window
  •  DCWV Spring Stack of pattern paper
  • My Craft Spot stamps - Inside & Out Set #2

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
