Vellum flowers and dancing borders

The Challenge this week At Joan's Gardens is to create a flower using vellum, and use a sentiment on a red white and black (only card) that has a diecut border.  For the diecut edge I used Spellbinders Borderabilities S5180.  I also used Spellbinders  Shapeabilities  Die D-Lites S2-009 for part of the decoration under the flower The sentiment is a Just Right Clearstamp from the large Fancy Sentiments collection, die cut with Spellbinders Labels 18 S4-310 that's been lightly sponged with black ink.  The Vellum flower is constructed of 3 cutouts of an old stamp using Sweet Stamps White ink for vellum that has been run through the embossing folder (Square lattice by SU), stacked up, then edged very lightly (and randomly) with diamond stickles. The center of the big flower is a trimmed down Mc Gill flower punch. The grey,  black and clear rhinestone swirls are by Engraver (563943).  Everything except the Engraver rhinestones and SU products are available at Joan's Gardens
