Congratulations Card

Hi everyone, here is my card today featuring stamps, dies, and paper from Heartfelt Creations.  I used one of the card fronts from the "Antiquity" paper collection, I cut one frame and the center circle mated with cardstock and adhered with pop dots for dimension. 
I stamped the image with black ink on the circle that I cut from the center and colored with watercolors.
Layered lots of flowers and leaves, I used walnut brown stamp paint to add some distressing and shimmer to the petals of the flowers and leaves.
Here you can see the shimmer, as a final touch I added the cluster of rhinestones and pearls to the leaf branches.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
