The Elisa inspiration - Thank You

This card submission for Cricut was really inspired by a friend of mine - Elisa.  She had made a card that used a scallop punch (of the same size) layered on top of each other to make a 3-D flower.  Her color palette is often monochromatic, so I when I decided to use her inspiration in my own way, I felt it was only right to please her visual palette (perhaps she might see it in her mailbox one day).
it's very vintage-like
I'm really trying to stand out as I make my cricut card submissions - so I'm pulling out the spanish stamps wherever I can!

Look at the layers on the paper flower on top of the lace.

This is me trying to be artsy in my photography.  LOL.  I really need to take some classes on how to best take pics for this blog.
