Dies R Us - Arched Loop

Hello, and welcome today.  It's Barbara and I have a card for your inspiration.  I purchased this lovely border die, but decided to use it as a main focal point on this card.  Here is what I mean.
 I just cut this die twice to make a lattice background for my flowers to be displayed on.
 On the base of black card stock, I place a frame from the Frantic Stamper Stitched Rectangle Frame.Then I place the lattice white piece on top of that.  It gave me a nice background to place the flowers that I die cut from Penny Black, Gaiety.  The flowers are colored with copic makers and I added some black detail with my black copic pen.  I thought it need some bling, so I added a few sequins from my stash.
I am really trying to finish the inside of each card that I make, but leave the sentiment for later.  This was easy, as I just die cut another flower and colored it lighter than the ones on the front.

Here are the dies that I used for this card.  You can purchase them at the Dies R Us store.
