There it is again...one of my favorite shabby fabric roses, with clusters of paper roses and leaves on top. By the time I was finished with the lacy edges on the papers and the wide crocheted lace across the front, flowers seemed to be the only embellishment that fit with the rest of the design...
I liked the way the cardstock flourishes looked...but the dark brown on its own was too stark...and the aqua on its own was too pale...but the aqua offset over the brown gave exactly the effect I wanted. I added a few brown pearls over the flourish to balance the pearls at the top...
