Pink Cherry Scalloped Layers

This sweet little number is for Color Throwdown  #228, Freshly Made Sketches #72, and Try Stamping On Tuesday #104.  The two sketch are very similar, so I think this card qualifies for both!
My idea started with the layered scallops.  I cut strips of First Edition DP, trimmed them with the scallop edge punch and layered them on the bottom of the card.  I figured the whole background done in the scallops would be too much, so I added a scrap of gray hounds-tooth  to the top.  Next I concentrated on the flower.  I cut two of the big flowers from the Blossom Party die, as well as a couple of smaller ones.  I ran them through the Big Shot using my Lacy Brocade EF and crumpled them up to make them look kinda distressed. I layered them all together with a small, gray flower button, added some Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon and some gray pearls and this card was done!  Oh yeah, except for one thing....a little spritz of Champagne Shimmer spray.  It gave the whole card a bit of sparkle!  As you can see I substituted Cherry Cobbler for the Riding Hood Red.

Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: none
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Pink Pirouette, First Edition, and  Houndstooth & Scaringbone DP
Ink: None
Accessories: Cherry Seam Binding ribbon, Gray pearls, Neutrals button, Blossom Party die, Scallop Edge punch, Champagne Shimmer spray, Lacy Brocade EF
