Today's card combines the beautiful flowers from Thoughtful Expressions with the Nature's Sweetness Designer Series Paper (DSP).

This pretty paper has several designs in the collection that include gold foil,  and who doesn't  love a beautiful specialty paper with lots of gold shimmer and shine.  I adhered the Nature's Sweetness DSP to a mat of gold foil. But, before adding the DSP, I die cut the Thoughtful Expressions fancy "circle" from the center of the foil mat.

Cutting a die cut from the center of a foil mat is something I always do, even if I don't have a planned use for it at the time.  But it is a great tip to remember to maximize the use of your foil cardstock.  There is no point in covering up all the pretty gold, right?

The flower "bouquet" was colored with Stampin' Blends.  I used Highland Heather, Pretty Peacock and Granny Apple Green Blends for my coloring.  The center "bouquet" and the two flower sprays at each end were die cut with coordinating dies from Thoughtful Expressions.

Flat iridescent pearls were added to each flower center and some Wink of Stella was also used to highlight the two large Highland Heather flowers.

To beautify the inside, I added two strips of the same designer series paper as was used for the card front.  It's simple, but pretty.
