Pals Paper Arts #118 - Shades of Latte

Happy Monday Everyone,
Today's post is for the Pals Paper Arts Colour Challenge this week.  I saw this card by Bronwyn Eastley and liked the way she had used the strips of Designer Paper, rounded the corners and the flower, so using those ideas here is my card.  Similar but quite different. Thanks' for the inspiration Bronwyn.  I have embossed the Very Vanilla layer and snipped the petals of the bottom two layers into the middle so the petals are more flexible.  I used my bone folder and fingers to shape the petals of the flower and used a dimensional between each layer.  I added the Scribble Swirls and the Champagne Stampin Glitter for the finishing touches.

Stamps:  S/U's Creative Elements
Card and Papers:  Soft Suede, River Rock, Very Vanilla, DSP Paper Pack - Neutrals
Ink: Early Espresso
Embellishments:  Stampin Glitter Champagne Glass
