Stampin's not just for Cards!

I have been re-doing the decor in my living room this last week, changing the accent color from brick red to lime green. I had this framed piece for quite a few years that used a lot of red and sage green and I wanted to change it up to match the new room. I'm really happy with the results!
I should have taken a "before" picture. I replaced the old background paper with Chocolate Chip and Kiwi Kiss colored DSP from the Bella Rose DSP pack. Then I used the "Priceless" stamp set and Close to Cocoa ink to stamp the corners. I added some prima flowers with brads in the centers (I had to cut the prongs off). For the other corners I embossed the butterfly from the "Dreams Du Jour" stamp set. I also put some rhinestones on, but I haven't decided if I like them yet. What do you think? Here are some detail shots:
