Floral Decoupage Card

This card was made from a Public domain image of a flower which I then uploaded into the Tile Maker that we have on Free Craft Downloads
To make the card
I used a 15cm x 15cm  (5.5ins x5.5ins)  square card
Beige029 Backing Paper from Free Craft Downloads
Floral decoupage sheet 
A piece of brown pearl paper from my bits and pieces box
Some gold corner and border peel offs
5 small square gems

I cut out and made up the decoupage sheet then when dry I highlighted some of the darker brown areas with a clear glitter pen
I printed the backing paper (borderless) on an A5 size sheet of paper and stuck it to the front of the base card
I stuck the decoupage onto a piece of brown pearl paper 10cm x 10cm (4ins x 4ins)
This was then stuck to the base card
I chose not to put it square which you could do if you wanted to.
To the edge of the decoupage design I added some gold fine line border peel offs
To the edge of the pearl paper I added a patterned border peel off
To each of the 4 corners I added a Gold corner peel off
To the centre of the decoupage and the 4 points on the brown pearl paper I added a small square green gem

I chose not to add a greeting / occasion to the front of the card I prefer it as it is and then could also be used for any occasion
