Fabulous For You ~ TSOT111

This is yet another card that devloped out of scraps on my desk.  The black oval is the negative of a previous project and that's were I started.  I browsed through sketches and thought TSOT111 was a good match!  I stamped the swirl from Everything Eleanor onto a scrap of First Edition DP and layered it under the black frame.  Next, I stamped the flower from Fabulous Florets onto watercolor paper and embossed it with black EP.  I colored the flower using a really fun watercolor bleed technique seen here.  After the image was dry, I cut it out, spayed it with some shimmer mist and placed on the frame with a dimensional.
For the verticle panel on the card, I wanted to do something other than a standard rectangle so  cut two panels with one of the Adorning Accents dies.  I bent the edges up a little for some extra dimension.  Lastly, I added ribbon, a sentiment banner and some pearls to finish everything up. 
Here's a list of supplies....
Stamps: Fabulous Florets, Everything Eleanor, Itty Bitty Banners
Paper: Very Vanilla, Primrose Petals CS & DP, Black, First Edition & To The Nines DP, Watercolor
Ink: Primrose Petals, Pretty in Pink, Bravo Burgandy, VersaMark
Accessories: Primrose satin ribbon, 1/4 black ribbon, Vanilla seam binding, Black EP, Shimmer Spray, Bitty Banners die, Pearls
