I found some stash i'd forgotten about

I bought a few verse scrolls years ago when I first started cardmaking, I found them at the bottom of a box of scrap card and papers that I have meaning to sort out, but never actually do it just incase I 'need' those little strips of offcuts. Quite why these scrolls were in my scraps box I don't know, i'm presuming hubby put them there lol
There were only 4 in the cello bag, and I can recall using one of them once before. I decided to use one as the main attraction for this weeks Sketch Saturday card...

This isn't my usual style, I was commissioned to make a card for a lady at work, when I saw the scroll, this sort of fits the bill.
I've added some flowers around the scroll, which were stamped with brown memento using a freebie clear stamp from a mag then coloured with PMs. The leaves were punched with a woodware punch.
The pretty paper is by First Edition, and is from their 'summer breeze' collection I love the embossed, glittery texture on this sheet.
The orange cardstock looks quite bold in the photo but it is actually a good match to the orange in the paper design. I used my trusty eyelet border punch to frame the orange cardstock with peach card sponged with pumpkin pie ink (SU).
To finish the front of this card, I added 2 photo corners, using an ellison thin cuts die and a few brown gems.
