Vintage Floral Garden Card in Neutrals

Hello everyone,

Just a very quick post of the card I made:

I used MFT Damask stencil and home made texture paste to create the background panel. I sprayed it with Ranger Perfect Pearls mist in Heirloom Gold.

Hand made flowers and two tone seam binding ribbon bow are arranged to look like they are climbing up the trellis cutout.

Trellis symbolizes the shabby chic garden and is embellished with different size pearls.

I made a box for the card and created the design with Damask stencil and Antique Linen Distress Ink.

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

Frilly and Funkie "Floral Infatuation"

Anything But Cute Challenge #16 Shabby Garden Mood Board (I was inspired by pictures in the middle of first and second row)
