Card for #5 Challenge

I made this card for the #5 Joan's Gardens Challenge.  I LOVE Cuttlebug's new Embossing Folders, especially the Brocade Window which is shown below. The embossing is so deep and makes such a nice impression. This folder not only embosses, but it also cuts out  the center making a very nice frame.
What do you think???? 
I first thought I would use one of the peach DP out of the Graphic 45 Paper Pad, so I chalked the embossed frame a peach color, then I added some green, then some black , then some gold, then more black and then more green.  I love the color when I finished it, but I certainly didn't know where I was going with it when I started.  Do you ever do anything like that?

I stamped the new Heartfelt Creation Clematis/Cottage Stamp twice, coloring both and cutting just the flowers out on one so I could stack them on top of each other for extra depth.  I used Labels 4 to cut one out and then used Dimensionals on top to make the flowers more realistic.
I glued a piece of Graphic 45 paper on top of the cardstock.  Labels 4 was used to cut out the one set of flowers and the frame was placed over the flower.    Kaiser Rhinestones were added as well as a black silk bow.

I love the new HeartFelt Creations Scripture stamps.  I added John 14.1 from the Believe stamp Set.
