C.R.A.F.T Challenge 18 - 'No backing papers'

This is my DT card for this week's challenge at C.R.A.F.T. This week's theme is 'No backing papers' so I've not used any.I've mounted cream hammered card onto gold mirri card after trimming it with scalloped scissors, leaving a nice mirrored border (even though it doesn't show in the photo) then stamped with gold ink onto the cream card.

The image is made by making a piece of 'distressed' cardstock to please the eye and then stamping on it in black dye ink. The stamp is a La Blanche image.
This is then mounted on a slightly darker cream and then onto more gold mirri and finally with 3D foam squares onto the stamped, hammered cream card.
The flowers are a layered mix of Prima and cheap Wilkinson's silk flowers

Thank you for looking - I hope you like it!
