Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger - Little Petits Fours

I have had such a busy week...........absolutely no time for crafting.
But last night, I was able to sit down and make a card for Moxie Fab's challenge.
I love the pretty pinks in the image, and the slightly shabby flowers.

 
I have kept it quite clean and simple for me.
 
 
 
 
 

I used the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Distress Stripes for the background.

*Cuttlebug A2 Embossing Folder DISTRESSED STRIPES Provo Craft 37-1644
 
 
The stripes are an old Hero Arts stamp - Background stripes
 

 
The flower is made with the Spellbinders Rose Creations Die.
I have used Distress Ink Markers to colour the flower.
 
 
 
The sentiment is from the Hero Arts set Everyday Sayings CL342
 
 
For the centre of the flower I have used a few small seed beads.
The card is finished off with three Rhinestones.
I am always completely amazed how these tiny elements do SO much on a card.
For my eye, they repeat rounded shapes on a small scale, and they kind of hap-hazardly, frame and enhance the focal point.
 
See what you think.
Enjoy!
