A second card for Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper June challenge

This is my second card for my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper June challenge - please click on the link to discover what this is all about, if you haven't done so already - and please join in my challenge, using any of your patterned paper - anything goes, as long as you use some patterned paper.

The prize this month is:

K & company Roam 6" x 6" paper pad
36 sheets - 3 sheets each of 12 designs

I had two of the K & Co Roam paper pads, so I made two cards using the same two stamps in different ways on two different pieces of paper from the pad.

For the second card I used this piece of paper from the K & Co Roam pad:

this time using the same two stamps, but inking with Brilliance pearlescent purple and sprinkling with pearl plum embossing powder and heating. I then swiped across with versamark and lightly brushed some  cosmic shimmer sunrise pink iridescent mica pigment over it, which I then buffed up with a tissue. In the process of rubbing the area I accidentally creased the paper in a few places. I ran it through my Xyron adhesive hoping that the creases would press out, but they didn't. In the end I thought it added to the vintage look of the card, so I decided to keep the creases! (instead of starting all over again, having spent quite a long time anyway).

This is also for:
