Belgian Background feminine card

This card I have made for Fat Cats Card Corner, who kindly provided the Belgian Background die set, the Cheery Lynn Gardenia strip die and the Impression Obsession mini spiral flower die set, and decided to make a pretty, feminine card with them.  

I have only used the outside die and the rectangle inner die in the Sue Wilson Creative Expressions Belgian Background die set for this card.  I cut a matt piece a little bigger than the frame and embossed it with the delicate hearts embossing folder.  I cut a smaller piece of white card, than the rectangle die piece I had cut out of pink card, to use for my sentiment which is an old wood stamp I had in my stash.

I chose to put a tiny pearl strip around the circumference of the sentiment rectangle, as I thought this would make for a prettier card.  

The flowers were done with the Cheery Lynn small gardenia strip die, just two of the complete flowers in pink, and then a spiral flower made with the Impression Obsession's mini spiral flower dies in white.  I also made some tiny buds with the two smallest flower pieces from the strip die one in pink and one in white.

The foliage is done with the Sue Wilson Creative Expressions delicate fronds dies, which I cut down into smaller pieces.
