Ornate florals

Hi crafters. A bit more of a vintage card today. I started by stencilling the Prima ornate lace stencil with brown and black texture paste onto book paper. I stained the paper with distress stains when the paste was dry. I wanted to try out the Tim Holtz small tattered floral dies so cut these from book paper and stained them too. Once dry, I layered the flowers and shaped them. The book paper was a little smaller than a 5×7 card so I added brown strips on the edges and then stuck it down. I glued Kaisercraft Horizontal damask border over the edges. I should have made more flowers but daylight was running out so I adhered what I had. I added yellow rhinestones to the centres and copper leaves accentuated with alcohol markers. The sentiment from Poppy stamps( doodle happy birthday) was placed on a banner cut with the Concord and 9th Holly Jolly banner dies. (I partially diecut it twice to make it longer). I added a few scattered black gems.

I am entering this card in Simon says Stamp Monday challenge: Beautiful blooms
