Inkspirations Challenge #15

I had lots of fun making this card...and made two different versions.  My inspiration started with the Inkspirations Challenge from Keesh below.  I have the Pocket Silhouette stamp set that mirrors this example, but wanted to try something different!  So..I started by cutting out different flower types in Very Vanilla and Black from my Cricut.  I stamped on the Very Vanilla flowers with PaperTrey Ink's Fancy Flourishes.  Then I added a button and some twine! 

On my first card, I stamped flourishes in gold on the edges.  I then cut a circle out of the middle to add my sentiment and a few little pearls!  Hope you can see the gold on the edges of the card!

First picture is outside!  Sorry for the shadows!

Second picture is inside...can't really see the gold!  But less shadows! dear friend Sandy stopped by last night and delivered a wonderful birthday present to me!  I am in love with this!  I don't have a Sizzix Big Shot...and have been watching this at Archiver's!

So, of course, I had to make another card to try this out!  Instead of the gold I used one of the texture dies and sponged it a little to make it pop even more!  Hope you enjoy...I am in love with my new tool!  Thanks Sandy!
