The Card Concept 96

Hey Friends, I have 2 cards for this challenge! I made the one down below first in an elegant and classy style with a nod to rustic. But then I ordered this Simon Says Stamp "Beautiful Flowers" set and had to use it. I declined to get the card kit subscription in June for this and then kept seeing it and loving it more and more. I guess the style of this is elegant and classy too. 
I first colored the image with Zig markers on Bristol paper. There wasn't enough contrast tho so after it was dry, I added colored pencils to parts of it and it popped much better!
I fussy cut around part of it and cut it out with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Square die. I did the same for the wood grain patterned paper. Then added a heat embossed sentiment from the same set and some sequins. 
Keep reading below please.

On this card I let the paper do the work. I used this lovely Echo Park patterned paper called Rustic Elegance with is also the style of my card. I beleive the sentiment is from an "Our daily bread" set.
I heat embossed in gold powder and cut it our with oval Spellbinder dies. The scalloped rectangle is from Pretty Pink Posh, cut in gold foil paper and layered on vellum. 
I hope you all head over to the The Card Concept blog and see with the team came up with. And please play along!
We'll be back in September!
