Pearls & Swirls..for a challenge

Decided to do the Dutch Dare Card Challenge ( http://dutchdare-cardchallenges.blogspot.com/).  There theme this week was "pearls & swirls"...right up my alley :)

I started with a scrap of black & white, flocked, handmade paper for the background.  I then made the lattice element with white and shiny black card stock, adding grey pearls for the trim.  I added a white scallop border to the top and bottom.

Then I made the flower using a Spellbinder's die.  After cutting the card stock I coated each piece with diamond glitter.  Once dry I layered them and attached with a rhinestone brad.  I inked the leaves and added a swirls flourished.  I cut the flourishes on my Cricut with Accent Essentials.

Not quite the look I sketched out, but still pretty.
