D'Amour Allure - Melissa card for challenges

Second post today, because I can't wait to show you this cute "Melissa" image from D'Amour Allures. She is so cute & adorable and I can't wait to do a card using her, lol
I am also using this card for a few challenges:

Here is my finished card. I created a little window opening and used the ribbon to fold like the Roman Style shades on each side of the window. Used some gold trim to tie it a the bottom.

I curled up a few flower petals and used a brad to put them together in one flower
