Monochromatic flowers

After all the moving and piles of work, I finally got to make something! YAY!
Taking my cue from Double D's "Neutrals with texture" challenge, I went monochromatic here. The central image (that SU stamp everyone seems to have....) is clear embossed on a snippet of tan, then mounted on a snippet of white (both cut with Nesties), with the sentiment (Taylored Expressions) on another snippet. Everything is edged with a brownish distress ink. The panel behind all that is embossed with the Swiss Dot folder. The layered flower embellies are pre-made and from a grab bag of goodies I picked up at some yard sale.

This card is for these challenges:
Double D's -- Neutrals with texture
Die Cut Divas -- anything goes with diecuts
Pixie's Snippet Playground #291 -- use snippets
Word Art Wednesday #294 -- anything goes
Kraftin' Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday -- anything goes
