This one came about just by experimenting with the cards from the Australian Stamping and Papercraft magazine Vol. 16, No. 5. I saw my En Francis stamp just sitting in the glass cabinet & the Nesties & sponge were out from another stamping project so, this is what I got.
I stamped the En Francis in Chocolate Chip ink onto Chocolate Chip CS & sponged around the edges with Chocolate Chip ink. I also sponged around the Pink Pirouette CS with Pink Pirouette ink, then cut the Chocolate Chip piece 1/4" smaller.
I used the middle oval nestie to cut out a piece of Whisper White CS. I left the die in place while I sponged some Kiwi Kiss ink around 1/2 of it, then I stamped the Vine stamp over the sponged areas. I cut a piece of Pink Pirouette CS with the matching Scalloped nestie and sponged the edge with Pink Pirouette ink.
I stamped out the flowers in Pink Pirouette ink onto Whisper White CS & rock 'n' rolled them in Chocolate Chip ink. I cut them out finely with a pair of very fine tipped scissors leaving a scant 1/16" white border. I did the same with the leaves and Kiwi Kiss ink.
Finally I assembled them all together. Putting the final embellishment on of pink pearls.

Wow, there's a lot of detail and work in this one! At least that's how it appears! But it's a gorgeous card! You seem to have all the details thought out - like the coloring on the flowers. I just love that! So pretty.....
