Flower collage trio

One of my favorite classic stamps sets from TAC is Flower Collage Trio. These images are so beautiful and versatile. For this card I colored the violets and other flowers with my copics. Outlined the petals with the stardust jelly pen and added a little bling in the centers with yellow stickles. I also pierced along the edges and went back with a micron marker to add faux stitiching. The final touch was to distress the edges to make it look like fabric. I went over the whole thing with a bit of cognac palette in to add to the aged look.  I embossed the background cardstock with a quickcutz folder I had on hand. The sentiment is from an old gift with purchase stamp I think...  The paper flower is one I made from an old book. I talked aboout it a couple of posts below.  It's hard to tell by the picture but the cardstock is purple and everything matches color. I don't know why some cameras distort the color even when you use natural light..ugh!   So what do you think?  Have a great week!
