I have decided that this is one of those cards that look better in real life. It is a busy card but the camera seems to make it even more busy.
I used the MFT Four Corners set but I only used one of the corner to make my background, to be honest I picked the wrong one there was a larger one of the set that I planned to use but picked up this one instead.
It would have meant less to cut out.
Any way I place double side tape to the back of the card I was using so I only had to peel it off and stick the corner. The card mat was a bit bigger than I need so I could cut down to size and therefore have a neater finish.
I then used the Simon says Stamp Stitched Rectangles to make my frame and used the Simon Says Stamp Calliope Flourish. Now when I took the Stretch Your Dies one of the classes cut down the flowers to add on top of each other. I tried it, look pants so I decided to use the smaller flowers to add to the larger flowers.
To finish I used the Simon says Stamp Dies and Stamps Wishing set, I did layer the Wishing possibly three times altogether to help it stand out more in all that white. Some pearls to finish out of my stash job done.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
