Another Easter Card

I finally decided to think outside the box and make a card that is mostly white on white.  This Easter card is for my daughter Emily's family.  I had a couple of problems with this card.  The gold die cut that frames the cross is Spellbinder's Floral Ovals.  I cut one with gold foil paper, but got damaged when I was assembling the card.  When I cut the second one, even though I ran it through the Spellbinder twice, once without a shim and once with a shim, the very small detailed pieces did not pop out.  Since it was my very last piece of gold foil paper, I didn't want to ruin it trying to poke these small pieces out, so I just left them in!  I still think it looks really pretty! The image is "Easter Lily" by Stitchy Bear Stamps.  I used pencils & promarkers to color it.  I ran a glitter pen over the cross & rays, it really doesn't show up in the picture, but it sparkles in person.
The second die cut behind the cross is Cheery Lynn's Sophie's Heart.  Behind that I used another layer embossed with a Spellbinder's M-Bossabilities EL-009 and added three pearls on each corner.  Then it all went on top of the white card base.  I used pop dots between each layer.  Thanks for stopping by to take a look!

Hi again Patty,
I think the gold frame looks perfect, sometimes I tend to make mistakes and just leave it as is; I consider it as a artsy :) Your creation is beautiful and I'm sure you dd's family will love your card. Nice to have your entrance once more at [Digistamps 4 Joy] and all the best!
