So I found this perfume atomizer on the net, altered it to my needs, and cut out with my Cricut onto white cardstock. Painted it with Lumieres (a light gold and then a dry brush technique with Raspberry). Layered it onto another piece of white cardstock colored in with orange Prisma colors and then a layer of Glossy Accents in the holes. Glittered the bottle cap with copper glitter, added gold pearl type string and brown Fun Fibres for the tassel. Wrote in my word "Roses" (name of the perfume BIG GRIN).

Background is white cardstock stamped with the large Flourish (Quietfire Design) and embossed with white Pearl. Sponged with Distress stamp pads, Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo and Black Soot, misted with water, dried. Cut with my Cricut into a large oval shape which I trimmed at the bottom. Created my card oval with my Cricut as well layering one oval on top of the other and using the weld feature.

Rubber stamped the quote with Versafine Black Onyx, cut with  a Spellbinder's oval die and sponged some Spun Sugar and Vintage Photo on the edges. Did the same for the sentiment "My Friend". Both are also Quietfire Design stamps.

The layers for the card are the flourish background, the brown with white dots ribbon, a piece of vellum white swirled patterned paper, an off white ribbon with off white dots, then the perfume atomiser then the quote. Then added 3 small half pearls on the atomiser

Sponged Distress onto another piece of white cardstock Spun Sugar & Vintage Photo with some Walnut Stain, misted with water, dried, run through Cuttlebug with Kassie's Brocade folder #2000215, brayered high points with Perfect Medium and embossed with Queen's Gold. Layered onto floor of easel and trimmed down. Adhered my sentiment, added a large amber half pearl.

Had a box of these baby tea roses from about 30 years ago when I was into dried flower crafting and was looking for some silk roses - which I couldn't find, so used this one instead. Had some feathery greens in the same box. Love the look. Added a piece of foam core to the back of the front flap so when closed it protected the rose from damage.

OK so mine became an oval easel card instead of a rectangular card.
