A Jem of a card!!!!

I call my lovely team of girlies Julie's Jems and they all are gems!!!!!
We have our own private forum and have started doing challenges between us. Each fortnight one of the girls sends us all the same kit and we have to make a project and post it at an agreed time on our blogs!!
This is our first challenge and the fab Steph was the hostess!! Blimey she sent enough stuff for about 3 cards but I decided to throw it all on one card!! I used everything except 1 image and a sentiment!!!
The papers and card she sent are all Stampin Up from the Simply Scrappin Round Up kit which is retired but still available to purchase. The colour combo is Really Rust, CLose to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel and Sage Shadow.

Images have been coloured in with Stampin Up ink pads

I dont know the make of the flowers as Steph sent these, the linen thread is Stampin Up!

For the middle panel I stamped the sentiment from the Best Yet set and added a frame around it from Frames with a Flourish set. I added some ribbon and one of my bows with a flat back pearl in the middle! The flourish from the Yummy set in the corner to finish it off!

Another angle!!

Did some doodling round the edges as it was looking a bit sparse!!
Sorry for so many pictures!! Its a rather extravagent card for me!! Was hard to get photos of the correct angles!!!
Hope my Jems like it and I cannot wait to see all your creations! Thanks Steph for a lovely kit!! Jeannette its over to you!!!
