Flowers peeking through the lattice

You know when you can create a feeling on a card it is a success to me... so I feel that I have done this... I wanted to create flowers climbing over a lattice through a window.. peeking into the area where YOU are...
What do you think.... did I successfully do that???

Okay...  I really enjoyed doing this card ... I got up really early and started to play with the flowers and colored them with Ranger Markers by Adirondack  and used their Red Pepper and Cranberry colors on the bird and flowers...  For the leaves I used a couple of Tombow greens.. I didn't want them to real outstanding, as one of the color challenges doesn't have the green in it... but I don't feel you can put flowers onto a card without the leaves.. so I toned them down..

I Embossed the 'window' using Brocade Window Embossing plus folder by Cuttlebug... and then added the lattice myself..

This card was created for four challenges...

#1.  Just Rite  Friday Challenge #36 is a color challenge... to use Dark Red, Ovory and Black... and a handmade embellishment... ( My lattice work)

#2.  Cute Card Thursday   challenge #130 was to use a bird or butterfly... I have done this challenge a few times this week and have used the butterfly, so I used the bird...

#3.  Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #77   was to create a GRID pattern... so I created the lattice... of diamonds with thin paper...

#4.  JUGS Color Challenge #51 was to use Green, Red, Black, cream, white or kraft...  So I used the first 4 colors...

#5.  Whoopsi Daisy challenge which is to pile on the flowers.. this is one huge flower... piled on... 

#6.  Secret Crafter Saturday where anything goes...

So these are the challenges... join in on the fun.. do a few... there are generally prizes associated with each challenge... and they are fun just to see how many you can do on one card.. That is what I love to do with all these different challenges..

Hope you have a wonderful day... enjoy creating something fun and masterful... thanks for stopping by for a visit and I will hopefully see y'all later... Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie
