Stamptacular Challenge #16 Shapetacular Card

Well this is one shapetacular card alright. I don't remember if I got the template from a magazine or a book, but I have made something similar before.
After I had cut out the shape and folded it, I stamped it firstly with the old writing in Stazon Stone Grey, then the flowers which I embossed in gold and lilac. Feeling that I hadn't done quite enough stamping I decided to go over it yet again with random dots, which I also embossed in gold.
The tag is from a Cuttlebug die and the sentiment is Hero Arts. I discovered that one of my Nestie squares with the corners rounded, just fitted inside the tag. Lucky huh!
The antennae are just a piece of wire with a couple of glass beads attached.
