Branches Arrangement Card

Here's the 5th card I made for this week as Card Captain of the enjoyMichaelStrongstamps Yahoo Group.
I made this Branches Arrangement card, a simple yet elegant card which fits any occasion.
Cream CS for the card's basis
Beige paper
Chocolate brown CS
Dark gold and burgundy canvas textured CS
Martha Stewart's Gothic Arches edger punch
Michael Strong's Cloisonné Pot stamp (large)
Gold EP
Stazon ink – Timber Brown
Forest green and olive green half pearls in various sizes

I punched the beige paper using Martha Stewart's Gothic Arches edger punch, and distressed its edges a little with Stazon ink to give it a dark, contrasting frame.
I stamped Michael Strong's Cloisonné Pot on chocolate brown CS, heat embossed it with gold EP and cut it out using TH scissors, then I cut it into 2 separate parts to create 2 low containers.
I trimmed the dark gold and burgundy canvas textured CS into very thin stripes, and glued them on the back side of the containers.
The containers were glued 3D for extra dimension.
I also attached forest green and olive green half pearls in various sizes.
