Vintage Creative Elements - PPA131

I created a vintage card using the sketch challenge at Pals Paper Arts.

You can see the layers of the dahlia below.  There are three layers, each separated by a dimensional.  The butterfly and word strip are also popped up with dimensionals. 

The background is stamped with Sahara Sand, the flower with Regal Rose, and the butterfly with Soft Suede.  I also used Soft Suede and a sponge dauber to get that distressed look on the edges after roughing them up with the edge of my Paper Snips.  I know there is a tool for that, but I prefer to use the sharp edge of my little scissors.
