Fleur

The Lavinia Stamps Challenge this month is 'Add a Flower or Flowers'.

I decided to use the lovely 'Fleur' Lavinia stamp, which I 
stamped with an Onyx Memento ink pad and coloured in with Promarkers.  I die cut the image and matting card with  Memory Box Stitched Rectangle dies.  The pink border is punched with a Martha Stewart punch, which is attached to the front edge of the card.  To make sure the little pearls don't come off, as they are over a little hole, I attached small circles of the pink card behind each one at the back of the border, with wet glue.  The embossed, punched flower finishes off my card.

This photo shows the card open.  

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
