Papertrey Make it Monday - Layered mats and frames - Just a note

I had a really tough time taking a picture of this one but I tried my hardest! :)  This card had a lot of steps so let me get started!
I layered a vintage book page cut in Mat Stack 4 with an angled label die cut.  I then used my Beautiful Blooms die to cut out a flower in the top layer.  I stamped Text Style's background text image on the turquoise die cut and then the angled label outline.  I used a brush pen to make the flower shape more obvious.

On the white layer, I stamped the sentiment from the Signature Series dress form.  Love the combined fonts!  I used a dark chocolate card stock that I impressed with an impression plate.  Foam dots were placed behind the turquoise layer to pop it up from the white layer and then I just put the dark chocolate cardstock onto the white card base.  Done! :)

Paper: Staples 110 lb white, dark chocolate, turquoise, vintage book print
Stamps: PTI Text Style, Angled Labels, Signature Series dress form (sentiment)
Ink: Jenni Bowlin Speckled Egg, Spiced Tin
Misc: PTI Impression Plate, Beautiful Blooms die, Mat Stack 4 die, Angled Label die, brush pen from my stash

I like both of your MIM cards. My favorite is this one. I like how the sentiment is 'just a note', and you have used a letter IP and text background.

So pretty and your dry embossed background is great it makes the card!
