Cheery Lynn Lots of Layers challenge

The challenge on Cheery Lynn is lots of layers this week.  I made this card shape using the inverted scalloped oval XL stacker set. I scored and folded my card stock then laid the die on it with the left side off the fold to make the base card, then I used the same die and cut a piece of the pretty new Fab Scraps High Tea paper from Joan's Garden.  I then cut the beautiful Swedish Spring Oval die  and trimmed the card and the die with a gold pen.  For this pretty flower image I used the flower from the Mother's Day set from
Our Daily Bread Design and cut it out with the scalloped coved rectangle die and edged it in gold also.  I used the flourish from the inside of the Celtic oval frame and the inside of the Victoria Garden Doily Frame.  I used the olive branches for the gold mirror card ones to give it some light. The flower was made from the Stacker Flower 5 and the classic window stacker to cut the sizes. I have about 6 layers on the flower and a pearl in the center to finish the card.  If you have some Cheery Lynn dies come and play along for a chance to win a gift certificate for the dies.  I'm also entering this in the challenge for Joan's Garden and Our Daily Bread Design.  Be sure to check out all of the blogs to see the beautiful creations from the teams, and a chance to win some goodies!!!
