sweet stampin #21 - colour combo

I'm loving the colour combo this week over at Sweet Stampin, Emma has chosen a beautiful palette of 4 colours, although it is fine to use 3 if you'd prefer to ...

and here's my card...

I started with a bashful blue cardstock base, I cut a square of bella bleu DSP and used a perforating cutter on the 4 sides so it looked (sort of) like stitching, then took away the corners, stuck the paper down and added a pearl to each corner.
The rest was simple to do, the flowers are made using the 5 petal flower punch and the boho blossoms punch, I inked the edges of the flowers and assembled them together.
The sentiment is from the oval all stamp set and is punched out with the scalloped oval punch.
The leaves were also from a piece of DSP in the same collection using a woodware punch.

I have sent this card to Mrs A, thanking her for the beautiful gift that she sent to me,
She has already received the card and i'm delighted to say that she loved it! :)
