Whimsy flower power

Denise had this wonderful flower power challenge that I loved to join. I too am sick of Christmas and it felt so fresh to use flowers again! And I also got the opportunity to use my new turtlestamp I won in her blogcandy a while ago.

This card is one of the brilliant ideas I had (that I mentioned a few posts down). It's in three parts and I wanted to make like two cards in one. I'm thinking about decorating the second part a bit more and maybe adding a text. I made the front a little narrower so a piece of the polkadot paper would show through. The closing I made with a ribbon and an eyelet. This is also a "technique" I'm taking credit for (just like the embossed part of the HM card), lol. Haven't seen it anywhere else.
The window is cut out with a circlecutter and the flowers are small primas with glitterglue in the middle. Hope you like it!

I've put up better photos of the house mouse and polkadot cards. Will do the same with this card when the sun comes out :)
