Pretty Floral

For this card, I use all 3 of the new Cocco papers, the Curved Rectangle Nesties, and the new Nature and Floral Repositional Stamp all shown below for this weeks sale.

After stamping the floral, I cut out the striped paper with the Curved Nestie and then used the Oval Nestie to cut out the floral. I used the same Oval Nestie on the striped paper which gave it a picture framed look.

I have popped up each layer to give it dimension. I wished afterwards I would have stamped a sentiment on the floral. I was afraid that I would not get a perfect stamped image if I did it now, so I chose not to do it. I tried to add it as a separate attachment, but that didn't work either. So, I will add the sentiment on the inside.

I thought the brown Pearls by Kaiser was a nice finishing touch. What do you think?
