Inspired card

isn't it a glorious day outside, I just got back from my job in the bakers shop....oh so tempting working around lots of cakes I know!
anyway I thought I would show you this card I have made for a good friend of mine. The Card base was cut from Go Create's largest die and I used the other sizes to cut the layers. For the dark brown layer I drew around the outside of smallest die. Next I embossed one end of the top layer with a Craft Concepts folder and used My Hougie Board to emboss 1/2 " lines at the other to create a diamond pattern. I distressed with Vintage Photo around the edges to create a nostalgic feel.   


I cut 3 layers of each size of paper flowers from Joy Craft Dies. I distressed all the pieces before assembling them, you can't quite see but I also added glamour dust to the butterflies for a bit of twinkle.
I would like to enter into some challenges
