WWC85 - Jean's Colour Challenge

http://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.ca/
This week we have a colour challenge from Jean, that highlights a new metallic option - copper! And Stampin' Up! gives us 3 amazing copper products: metallic thread, embossing powder and copper foil.

Jean has given us a very elegant colour challenge:

The first thing that popped into my head was to use the Botanical  Framelits Thinlits dies, which I hadn't used for a while. For the white element, I went to the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack. A Basic Black cardstock base completed the third requirement.

As a finishing touch, I added Basic Pearls that I embossed with the copper embossing powder.
The banner and sentiment are from Thoughtful Banners, stamped with Archival Basic Black and punched with the banner punch.

Here's a closeup of the flowers:
