Joan's Gardens Challenge

For Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #18, we are to make a card or project this week and use the following:  Paper-Vertical Strip, Die Cut, some kind of alteration to card stock- Diamond Glaze, cracked ice or anything to change the texture...even embossing, and a Swirl - either pearls, rhinestones, paper, or stamped.
This card kind of  changed as I went along from my original plan.  Used a kraft base card and layered on this an ivory mat that I stamped with a leaf swirl and then dry embossed with CB EF divine Swirls. I added some stamped leaves and flower on lower right corner...actually stamped the kraft CS first and then decided to extend over the ivory. Added a vertical strip of dotted vellum paper with vellum tape over the ivory cs. Like the way the leaf swirl shows through.  Cut my flower with Spellbinders Blossom dies and added a coat of Glossy accents to the layers that I shaped and put together with a brad. Added a green rhinestone to flower stamped on lower corner. Finished with a rub on sticker.

Challenges:
Joan's Gardens: Requirements listed above.
Little Red Wagon: Something new...something old. Stamp are new...won last week. Rhinestone,sticker, and vellum are very old.
Stamp Something: Get Punchy. Used Blossom Dies for flower.
Cooking with Kate: Use a Leaf (punch, image, pattern, anything with a leaf), add some Embossing (heat or dry), and finish with a Sticker,  Leaf is my stamping, dry embossing done with EF, and sentiment sticker used.
