Longing Tilda

Here is my next card as a guest designer at Creative Stamp Friends.  This week's challenge is to create a card/project using the following sketch.
I began with a light brown card base. I cut a piece of striped card stock just a little smaller than the base.  I backed the striped card stock in light aqua card stock.  I added a square of dotted card stock that I rounded the corners and backed in dark aqua pearlescent card stock.  Then I added another square of light aqua card stock that I punched the corners using a fancy scallop corner punch and backed it in dark aqua pearlescent card stock.  I cut a square of large floral card stock and backed it in the dark aqua pearlescent card stock and added it to the center of the card. The image I used is Longing Tilda from Magnolia Stamps. I colored it using crayola and prisma color pencils and cut the image out in a circle.  I backed it in light aqua card stock and then again in dark aqua pearlescent card stock and cut around it using scallop scissors.  Then added it to the center of the floral card stock.  I added a aqua dot paper flower to the center of a white paper flower. I added a brown pearl to the center and added it to the upper corner of the image.  I backed the sentiment in dark aqua pearlescent card stock and added it to the bottom corner.  I finished off the card by adding 3 brown pearls to the upper corner.
