My Time to Craft - Elegant Rose

I love this PSX stamp which I believe I bought second hand on eBay quite some time ago. It suits Damask and traditional designs and came immediately to my mind when I saw the theme for this week's challenge at My Time to Craft.
The paper is from Papermania's Joyeux Noel collection, the die cut corners are Cuttlebug and the mount is from a Nellie's Set. I used a Crafty Individuals crackle stamp to overprint the inside of this card. The flower itself is overprinted with a script stamp from Image Tree. I added a little gizmo, (the name of which escapes me) to keep the front of the card closed when required. I added a pearl to this, to link it with the surround of the picture and added a couple of punched leaves to soften the effect of the fastener.
Crafty Angels want to see Paper Folding this week... no easel cards, no pre-made card blanks. I hope this Joy-Fold card qualifies!
That I believe is it!
