Sweet pea stampers challenge: use lots of layers

Please click here for a chance to win a 2-day ticket for the Big Stamp & Scrapbooking Show at Alexandra Palace 20-21 September

This is my design card for this fortnight's Sweet pea stampers challenge: use lots of layers.

The image is Sweet Pea Stamps Regan Kubecek's 'fairy bride' rubber stamp (also available as a digi) coloured with spectrum noir and mounted on a piece of Hunkydory foiled card. This was then mounted on to an embossed square from Craftwell's Teresa Collins swirltangle embossing folder. The lovely velvet pleats are from Maya Road and the flowers from Hobbycraft. The corrugated paper strips were from Poundland (I think!). The background paper is from an unknown kit that I've been using up recently.

The photo given for Perfectly rustics 30 reminds me not only of flowers, but particularly of these lovely pink velvet pleated circles from Maya Road:

And the colours and 'garden theme' with flowers are prompted by the photo given for The shabby tea room 233:

This is a large 8 x 8 card:
