I haven't made cards with a bunch of layers in a very long time, so this was a fun, but laborous card to make. LOL...
I started with a Marina Mist card base and added a layer of Patio Party dsp. (Aren't all those li'l hearts sweet?!) The I grabbed a scrap of Summer Smooches dsp for the next layer, wrapped it with 1/4" Whisper White Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon and added my two tags.
For the main panel, I colored my sky with a watercolor pencil and blended it with a Blender Pen for a gradual lightening of color. Over it I stamped the floral image with Jet Black StazOn ink and the ornamental image with Marina Mist. I then embellished it with those pretty Real Red flowers and Pearls.

Regina, I find layers challenging too since I started doing so many CAS styled cards. Your card turned out just great. It was fun looking at all the different DSP's, colors, layers and embellishments. I esp. loved your punched red flowers on your silhouette image. Cool the way you added the punched green flowers for leaves. TFS

Wow, the time it took to make this was well worth it. Your mixtures of stamps, layers and embellishments are over da top. I've had a long summer here, so far behind. Hope you'll forgive me if I can't comment on all your cards as you know what a fan I am of yours.
