L32, SSS, ABNH2: Pup in the Window

Hi there.  
Had a great time over spring break.  
The boys were at grandparents' houses for 3 of the days so I had fun too!  Went scrappy shopping with my Mom and SIL one day and golfed, scrapped and landscaped the others.  

Sharing a card I made inspired by a couple of challenges.  

The patterned papers are from Lawn Fawn's The Bright Side collection.
I stamped some kraft paper with Hero Arts Envelope Pattern for the back panel.
The window was made with the LF paper.  
It was actually a journaling square from one of the sheets. 
I carefully cut it out and added acetate I received from Karen Baker.  

I stamped, colored and fussy cut the puppy and the HA typewriter.  

I stamped the flowers on different patterns from the collection.  
The teal flowers are stamped on the bottom label of one of the papers. 
There's some cute patterns "hidden" there.
The stems are hand drawn.

I used a Fiskars punch to make the grass.

Dimension added to the window: 

This shows the journaling square I turned into a window:

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
A Blog Named Hero #2: Cards With a View
Lawnscaping #32: Stamp a Scene!
Simon Says Stamp: April showers bring spring FLOWERS

eta:  My thought was that the dog was taking a break from typing a letter to look out the window at the flowers so the typewriter has a purpose and not randomly placed there, KWIM? The only people stamps I have are playing in snow.  I like the critters doing human things...

Thanks for looking,
