DIY Damask card

Well, I've had a go and I can't say it was the easiest thing in the world to do!
The Shabby Tea rooms want us to use damask this week.  I figured I had lots of swirly stamps so I could use them to make a damask pattern .... this is what I came up with after I raided my son's box of lego to make a stampamijig!  I know it doesn't look much but it took most of the afternoon to put this card together!

I'm entering it into
The Shabby Tea Room #128 Shabby Patterns
Polka Doodles #34 Stitching
Stampin' for the Weekend #16 Pearls and Swirls
Clean&Simple  #205 sketch

The swirl stamps are Chocolate Baroque Butterfly Flourish Swirls and are stamped in Stampin' Up Sahara Sand.
The flowers are a Tim Holtz die, cut out of pink papers and tissue paper
The sentiment is a Stampin' Up set, Curly Cute
It has faux stitching around the edge of the damask paper, and teeny tiny pearls in the centres of the flowers.
