Charming Card with Windowpane

It's kind of a lazy Saturday here, so I thought I would try to make one more LNS challenge card.  I was messing around with how to make an inside panel using the Framed Tulips embossing folder.  Sharon Field has a great tutorial on her blog (Click Here) on how to use the folder with different sized card stock.  I think the tricky part is setting the windowpane.  I find that once I get it lined up, that's the time to "strategically" tuck and hide mini-glue dots underneath the windowpane.  I stamped the flower image on a piece of white c/s and then used the Scallop Rectangle Clearlit to cut it out.  It's hard to tell, but I cut out the butterfly and secured it on top of the windowpane with a mini-glue dot.  Have a good weekend everyone; I'm going to go relax and read a book on my Kindle...........
