Enjoy!

Morning.
Hope you enjoy this card.

You all know how addicted I am to Brushos and playing with inks.  I had a piece of cardstock that I had inked with Brusho, stamped on and played around with.  
As a large sheet of paper it just didn't work
....so.....
I decided to stamp the flower from a Stampin Up set with Versamark onto the paper and embossed with white.  I fussy cut them out and thought they looked so beautiful.  They reminded me of the iridescent orchids I see in the grocery store. 
I die cut a circle frame twice, glued those together then glued that over my sentiment to draw your visual interest there.  I then glued and pop dotted the flowers around the circle and added the pearls to the centers.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

What a great idea to make use of a background that turned out too dark. I have a couple like that and I might have to use mine in a similar way. The white embossing really makes the flowers pop too!
