Gothic Stained Glass Window

I don't have much time this morning, but want to get this card posted and will just give short information about it.  I received some Elizabeth Craft Shimmer Sheets and thought it would look beautiful behind one of the window die cuts. What do you think?  I think it is a fabulous look behind the window dies!   I used the Poppy Stamps "Grand Gothic Stained Glass" die.  The white card stock was first embossed using the Sizzix "Texture Fades" embossing folder, then the window die was used to die cut the opening.  The window die was die cut again so I could insert it inside the die cut opening.  A piece of the Shimmer Sheet was taped to the back of the opening.  The design paper is from the Memory Box "Viola" paper pad.  The Poppy Stamps Grand Flower Box die was used for the flower box below the window.  To create the flowers I used a variety of small flower and leaf dies from Cheery Lynn --  List below.
