Hello in Wisteria & Pool

My card today is a result of two challenges:  Picture Perfect Creations Color Challenge #72 and Craft Project Central September 2011 Card Sketch Challenge.

The card base is Wisteria Wonder card stock, my favorite of the new In Colors.  I used the Fancy Flower punch to punch out two flowers, one from Wisteria Wonder and one from Pool Party card stocks.  Using my bone folder, I weakened the fibers by pulling the flowers over it until the edges started separating.
I separated the two ending up with four pieces.  I scrunched them all up, opened them, layered them with the "fuzzy" side up, added the cut out center from one of the flowers in the Posy Punch stamp set and attached them all with a Pool Party brad.  The edges were randomly sponged with Wild Wisteria ink.  I ran a small piece of Pool Party card stock through the Big Shot with the Finial Press embossing folder and added this to a piece of Whisper White card stock.  A thin strip of Wisteria Wonder was added above the embossed piece.  I attached this to a piece of Flirtatious designer paper.  I paper pierced in a line across this layer.  A Pool Party brad was added and this was attached to the card front.  The flower was then added to the white layer.  The sentiment from the same stamp set was colored with Wild Wisteria and Pool Party markers, stamped on Whisper White and punched out with a 1" circle punch.  The smaller image from the same stamp set was stamped on Whisper White card stock using Pool Party ink and punched out with a 3/4" punch.  Both of these circles were popped up using dimensionals.  Rhinestones were added to the center of the flower around the brad and one was added to the center of the smaller circle.  What great colors these are together.  Hope you all enjoy a wonderful weekend.  Looks like we are going to have a real fall weekend.  There is definitely a chill in the air here.
