The Paper Players Challenge-PP69

It's Nance Leedy's turn this week at The Paper Players Challenge and look below to see this week's sketch challenge (I love sketch challenges!):

My Card:

I started out knowing I wanted to use Wisteria Wonder as one of my colors and then added the Cherry Cobbler. I needed something with a lighter shade to make the two other colors pop from each other so I added Pink Pirouette.

The flower was created by gluing a Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch in Pink Pirouette Cardstock right on the card for flower bases. I then cut (3) with the 5-Petal Flower Punch in Cherry Cobbler Cardstock  and added a center from the Boho Blossoms Punch in Wisteria Wonder Cardstock. I inserted a Square Rhinestone Brad in the center of all the layers. I then pressed all the petals from all 4 layers towards the center and glued in place on the card with a Stampin' Dimensional:

For my banner-like strip, I first stamped the Wisteria Wonder Cardstock with the En Francais Background Stamp inked in Cherry Cobbler Ink. Using the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Folder, I rolled Cherry Cobbler Ink directly on the impressions folder with my Brayer on the non-bumpy side. I then inserted my strip inside the folder and embossed my cardstock layer:
