A Peach of a Card to Make a Good Impression

This card is for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge to  make a good impression - we are to use dry embossing somewhere on our card.  I started with a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches shown below. Using white cardstock as my card base I added a layer of MME paper embossed with Darice EF Chevron. This is how I am making my good impression. For my focus, I stamped Flourishes Peaches stamp from Cherries and Peaches with Memento Espresso Truffle ink and colored with Copics G40,21,82, Y000,02,06,21, YR09, R22,24,43.  I cut the image out with a nesties circle die letting the leaf extend beyond the circle. I adhered this to a scallop circle of MME green pattern paper to which I added glitter to the stars with a Clearstar pen. Added some strips of chevron pattern paper which I also embossed with Cuttlebug EF Borders from With Love set-one with dots and one with flowers.  I finished the card by stamping a sentiment from the same Flourishes Stamp Set with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink.
Other Challenges:
Simon Says: Wednesday Challenge-Emboss it. Used dry embossing.
Tuesday Morning Sketches: #215 with an added twist - make it shine.  I added shine to the stars on the green pattern paper under the image with Clearstar pen. ( Hard to see in photo but it's there)
I read the rules for Timeless Tuesday several times and found no rule that  this challenge could not be combined with other challenges as Flourishes states some times.   So I am combining with 2 other challenges.
 I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa

Those peaches are STUNNING! Absolutely gorgeous. Thanks so much for coming to play at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week!
I think for Flourishes it's just the release challenges that they don't allow combining :)
