Wow Stef..this is quite a site that you chose for inspiration to-day. I had a hard time trying to decide because I really wanted to use my faux patina background. Suddenly this little gem http://www.bhldn.com/shop_sale/solar-rays-necklace popped up on my screen and I knew this was it. The background folder is Victoria from cuttlebug as are the corner die cuts. The leaves are from sizzix and the corner punch and the folder used on the flower is from stampin up. Once inspiration happened the rest came together rather quickly.

Sue, this is gorgeous. Love the rich patina of your bg and the dusting of gold is so elegant. Your pink blossom is really beautiful and the focal point of your card. The corner pieces finish it off in grand style.

This is a Beautiful Antique piece! I love the pretty patina you achieved on the bg, it's perfect for this pretty flower! There is a wonderful stormy moodiness to this card with the flower being the bright spot!!
