Flourishes FLLCMARRW2

Hi all! This is my entry for Flourishes FLLCMARRW2. For this challenge, we were to use the same image as both a focal and background image. I used the crocus from Flourishes A Year in Flowers 1.

Here's my card:

I decided to keep the card clean and simple because to be honest this is not my first try at this challenge and the first few attempts came out horrible. I stamped the image with Versamark on the base of the card and with Memento Tuxedo Black for the main image on the nestabilities labels 1 cut-out and colored it with Prismacolor pencils. Added a white lace trim and glued a second, smaller cream lace trim on top.
I colored the embossed edge of the nestabilities cut-out with the white prismacolor pencil. Finished off by stamping the sentiment with the black ink and adding a few adhesive rhinestones underneath. 

supplies used:
stamps: Flourishes A Year in Flowers 1; Urban Design communique curves sentiments
ink: Memento in Tuxedo Black
prismacolor pencils: PC938, PC1026, PC956, PC932, PC911
card stock: Papertrey Ink- kraft
accessories: adhesive rhinestones; nestabilities labels 1; white lace trim; cream lace trim

Thanks for looking!
