Stamp into spring

  The current challenge at Inkspirational  is a sketch which made me think of postage stamps. There is a reverse scallop edge on the sketch which is very much like a Spellbinder die I have so that's where I began.
    I have stamped my image and embossed in white on black card, the stamp is from Chocolate Baroque - Wild Meadow. I've also added some sparkle to the flowers but it doesn't really show in the photo...sorry.
    I die cut my frame using Spellbinder dies Inverted Scallop Square and Square and placed this over the top of my stamped image.
    In the corners of the black card are small clear gems to compliment the flowers.  The background was made by stamping in black on a white card blank using the smaller matching stamp in the same set.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
