I used glossy white cardstock for the background and added the gold braid and ribbon. The bows were hand-stitched with a gold seed bead in the center. The flowers were embossed with clear EP and popped up. I couldn't get the gold foil leaf to show up in the pic - this was very hard to photograph.

Oh my goodness! Wowza Lorraine! Your cards are always such a treat to view in the Teapot Tuesday Gallery and this one is no exception! I love the little gold bows complete with a little bead.....the flower is beautiful and to be quite honest, your photograph rocks! This card just screams the teapot and I am so impressed how you zoomed in on one portion of the teapot showing us a wonderful close up of one section! You rock Lorraine! I so love it!

I find anything with shimmer and sparkle hard to photograph so I know what you're talking about - but that doesn't take anything away from this gorgeous card! Love it...
