Flowers on a Trellis

I started to play along with today"s
Inspiration Challenge and Steph had a link to the virtual stamp night weekend...soo...
this is the card it inspired me to make.
I had fun making my own trellis.
First I cut a rectangle out of a piece of embossed cardstock.
Then I made a frame to fit over the opening.
To make the trellis all I did was turn the paper over (so I could work from the wrong side)
and glue thin strips that I had cut .
To make the gluing go easier first I  drew pencil lines diagonally
 from corner to corner.
To finish I added die cut swirley leaves ( from Cheery Lynn Dies)
and flowers from Michael's ( the ones that come in a cute bottle).
Add some pearls and a tiny sentiment and pop the whole thing up on the card front.
I didn't like just seeing plain white behind the trellis,
so I sponged some blue...way too bright ...
I glued a piece of vellum over it.  Much better!
Hope you like it!
Oh, yes..Gracie helped!
She likes her perch... she can look out the window  or down at me without moving!
