I had such fun making this card, they say "A change is as good as a rest" and this worked for me! I was starting to lose my mojo and at first struggled with what I was going to create for my project.  When I started I didn't have an end result in mind, this card just seemed to create it self as I went along.  
For the frame I used the Cheery Lynn XL Coved Rectangle Stackers, Using the biggest die and the next size down nesting them inside each other and die cut.  You end up with a perfect frame with which to hide your glue strips.  

Here is a close up of the parchment (please be gentle) I haven't done much parchment work before and this is only the third time so its not perfect.. but I like it.lol I used Polychromos pencils and sandor to colour with on the backside which gave a gorgeous softness to the flowers.
