    Here it is:

    And here's how my card came together. I hope you like it.

    0m_zpsc88401ec.jpg
    My base card is 6 x 8.3 and I lightly distressed the edges, using the Ingvild Bolme's distressing tool.

    1m_zps18207e7a.jpg
    My first layer of PP was cut at 5.6 x 7.4

    2m_zps78a21352.jpg
    My second layer of PP was cut at 5.2 (wide) x 5.4

    3m_zps163a980d.jpg
    And I cut a strip of 5.6 x 0.5 which I used at the top.

    4_zpsc37fb74e.jpg
    I distressed the edges of my papers and glued them like in the picture.

    5_zps4d83e92f.jpg
    I cut out the doily from the Prima Flower packaging, which came in the mainkit.

    6_zps04410b03.jpg
    And glued it to my card, using Fabri-Tac. And I glued the other piece of PP in place.

    7_zpsf7902b36.jpg
    Then I selected my embellies, which I knew I definitely wanted to use. The ribbon was cut from 1 of the flowers that came in the kit.

    8_zpsf383c448.jpg
    I prepped the die-cut window that came in the mainkit. Took all the little pieces out and folded at the score lines.

    9_zpsf7fd3c97.jpg
    I added little pieces of left over chipboard, to the back of the die-cut window. I only added it to the middlest piece like in the photo.
    ***TIP***
    I always save the negative of the DA chippies. They are great to use on whatever needs to be lifted.

    10_zps3945895d.jpg
    I then cut the 2 pieces on the left, to add to the back of the window. How? I simply layed my window on a piece of PP. Traced it and cut it to fit.

    11_zps23f5817d.jpg
    I glued the pieces to the back of my window frame and glued down the Resin clock on top of the window using Fabri-Tac.

    12_zps15befbb0.jpg
    I cut a part of the chipboard (CB) frame that came in the mainkit and painted it white, using acrylic paint. While the paint was still wet I sprinkled on some of the Lindy's embossing powder.

    13_zpsc407b1d8.jpg
    I glued the CB piece to the bottom of my window, like in the picture, and set it aside for now.

    14_zps01993fd8.jpg
    I took one of the flowers, that came in the kit, apart and cut the roset to get to use the beautiful sheer ribbon. I trimmed off the glued edge and then you are left with 2 sizes of ribbon. I glued the biggest right under my first layer.

    15_zps1851fbe1.jpg
    And the other one right over the top layer. I used Beacon's Fabri-Tac to glue the ribbon down, because it dries totally clear. Then I took 2 of the pearl spray thingies and, (using my glue gun) glued them down at one end. twisted them around eachother, and gluing them down, little by little, till I reached the other end.

    16_zpsa4010985.jpg
    here's a close up for you to see.

    17_zps5e85f2b9.jpg
    I then glued my window embellishment to the card as well as 3 little roses in the center of the doily that I cut out earlier.

    18_zps7fe4acb6.jpg
    I took another 2 sprays and slided the pearls to one end.

    19m_zps2cec093d.jpg
    Glued them in a half circle above the roses using my glue gun. Then I added stickles to the inner and outher line of the pearls, to cover the hot glue.

    20m_zps426771df.jpg
    Like SO. I also rubbed some stickles over my flower petals, using my fingers.

    21m_zps65949c5b.jpg
    And to my window with shutters embellishment.

    22m_zpsf107ff17.jpg
    I alsmost called it done, but I was missing some detail work…..

    23mo_zps87739f05.jpg
    So I added some Puffy Paint. When I heatsetted it, the embossing powder on the little CB, melted too ofcourse. I loved the shimmer the embossing powder gave, before heat setting, but I love the result even more after heating. And now, by adding this tiny detail………………………..

    cardm_zpsfe927a2a.jpg
    I called my card DONE!

    Here are some close ups:

      Another gorgeous card, Paulien! Love your tutorials! Thanks so much for sharing all these details! I would never have thought of tearing one of the flowers apart to use for ribbon trim!

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

            Gorgeous card Pauline and what a great idea for the trim. I love the window die, is that a Spellbinders die?

            #229393

            Beautiful card! Never would have thought to cut apart one of the flowers and use it for ribbon.

            #229394

            Thanks ladies! Steph…. I don't think so. This was a die-cut piece that came in the January kit.
