I got the idea for this card from a post by B. J. Peters. Mine is not quite as elaborate as hers, but a similar look. First I stamped a piece of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Whisper White with the Hardwood Background Stamp in Sahara Sand. Then I cropped a rectangular hole out of the middle with my Stampin' Trimmer. I did the same with another piece of white that measured 1/4" bigger to create the window frame.

This stamp is also available in Clear Mount, but I always prefer the wood-mount on these larger stamps because they are so much easier to handle.
Hello Spring is from Circle of Spring, available in the Annual Catalog. I cropped it with my 1" Square Punch, then cut a pink square just 1/8" larger to back it with. The Pink Pirouette butterfly is from the Bold Butterfly Framelits set # 138135 in the Annual Catalog.
This could be an all-occasion card, or a Mother's Day card (thinking ahead) or a birthday card. I know my Mother-in-Law will love it. She is a gardener extraordinaire!
