Curtain Call part 2

Following on from last Thursday's post, here's the second in my set of cards using those papers which I gritted my teeth to cut into!
Papers stitched and layered as before onto beige and black cardstock.

I really liked this part of the collaged paper - I can imaging someone being outrageous in the 1920's and dancing in front of the Eiffel Tower!

This time I added a die cut flourish coloured with a promarker and messed about the the promarkers and coloured up some prima flowers in the same beige colour and black.
I punched out a small flower from a scrap of the spotty paper from the last card.
Added a large pearl in the centre and two pearl pins to finish the outside.

Inside I added a border from the same paper and layered up some co-ordinating card onto the black background to make it easier to write a greeting.
There is a few more to come from these papers!
