Krafty Chicks Challenge #709 All Occasions

Hello again friends; I'm back with my DT card for this week's Krafty Chicks challenge.  We are on Week 4 which is 'All Occasion' i.e. birthday, sympathy, get well etc; the world's your oyster!  
I needed an anniversary card for my in-laws so this challenge was perfect timing for me.  Here is my card:
a closer look at the florals:
I also decorated the inside:

I began by cutting my white panel 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" and my black panel just a touch bigger to give me a thin border.  I adhered them together with double sided tape.  The floral die comes in two parts; the backing piece I cut from white card and the top detail layer I cut from gold mirror card.  I used the matching layering stencils to colour the backing die cut and then added the gold detail layer over top with liquid glue (it's not perfectly lined up with my stencilling but it looks ok).  I repeated this another 2 times, an extra one for the inside.  I added foam squares to the 2 for the front on my card and arranged them in such a way that I could stamp my sentiment in the centre of my card.  The sentiment is made up of 4 different stamp sets and I could have made my spacing a little closer between the mam and the ampersand but it was too late once I had stamped it!  I added a few tiny heart die cuts to fill some empty spaces and the front was complete.  For the inside I stamped a sentiment in black ink in the centre and then added the third die cut flower arrangement at the bottom of the panel (I did trim it ever so slightly so that it would fit).  I added the panel to the card base with double sided tape.  My card size is 5" x 7" which is my preferred size for family cards.  I hope you like it.

What a stunning floral garland!! Love the gold outline! Makes just about anything feel “rich” and romantic. I assumed gold embossing powder and was quite surprised it is a die. Enjoy your week!
