Contempory Floral Christmas Card

Take 1 plain piece of card, used ornate corner stencil, did pretty pricking design and stippled 'big and juicy' through the stencil.
I added pearls and jems to corner designs. Made some very pretty punched flowers adorned with pearl centres and used glittery snowflakes and ounched ferns to complement.
This is really the first stage of a larger card. will post next stage soon
