Dutch Paper Crafts Halloween Window Card

The release i am using is called the Marianne Design "Garden Release" for Dutch Paper Crafts.
The set includes, 2 bench seats, topiary, butterfly, wheelbarrow and watering can.

For this project i created a Halloween Window Card using the "straight" bench seat LR0259 and topiary LR0261 from this release:
Dies NOT from this release:
Marianne Passe Part-Out Circle *(PPO) CR1239
Spellbinders Large Scallop circle (using the large circle from Passe-Out to make the green frame)
Memory Box Precious Stars 98546

What i did:
I lined the front of the card with a double sided purple designer paper and die cut the scallop die (Marianne PPO) eyelet out and then hand cut the white i just cut out from the inside of the card to get the back of the purple double sided paper to show.    I die cut out the green scallop frame by using the largest Spellbinders scallop circle with the largest circle from the Marianne PPO.  Inside left side i cut just the circle out from the PPO, on the right i cut out a piece of black tulle and  (cereal box) chipboard from the largest PPO circle..i zig zagged around the tulle (the only way to get it to stay down (?).  I added the bench/Tilda and Tilda's owl using Fabric glue.  Added a tulle bow and diamond stickles to the topiary.  I also added a bit of Diamond Stickles to the die cut stars.
