It has been very long since I made a recess window card. They are easy to make and look awesome.
I used an old calendar for the background image. It's wonderful for the 'thinking of you' card. 

I used Seasonal Trees stamp set. Tree trunk is stamped with Tuxedo Black ink and leaves with Pistachio and Pear Tart. I love that this set includes solid and outline images. It's fun to play with them :)

Tiny flowers are punched with Flower Box border punch. Somehow I used negative pieces (flowers) more often then punched border it self. I added dots of Dimensional Glue to the center of each flower and covered the glue with Evening Glow Glitter.

Sentiment is stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with White Detail EP.
I also added some sparkle around the recess window with Sakura Glue Pen and Evening Glow Glitter.
