Roses all over background card

This card is a little bit different than the cards I have been making lately,
I have been feeling guilty not using some of my background stamps, so decided to use this MFT one and do a gold on Wine/burgundy card.

Other than the background stamp, I have kept the rest of the card simple. 
The stamp wasn't wide enough to go the entire background of the size card I make, so I had to do a join towards one side, so what I decided to do was wrap a plain strip around the card to hide this join, as it wasn't pretty!

Then for the sentiment I just stamped that onto a stitched circle I had cut out of a scrap.

Finally I stamped one of the Persian motif stamps from the Altenew stamp set, and coloured it in with my Zig Real brush markers.  I started doing a pink colour scheme, but then when I put it onto the card, it didn't go very well with the card colour, so I then coloured it over with a dark red pen and blended the colours and that looked much better.  I mounted this with some foam tape on the part that hung over the sentiment, the rest was glued on. 

Here is a video of me making the card
