Aged Tile Rose Card

I was playing with a technique in the Technique Junkies newsletter for a swap and this turned out pretty good. I folded a brown piece of cardstock to measure the standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I cut a 3 3/4" x 4 1/4" piece of Birch cardstock and stamped the images from the Rose Garden set in Red Magic and Hint of Pesto VersaMagic inks. The shadow image was inked and stamped on scrap paper before stamping on my cardstock and the main image was inked and stamped directly. I then cut this piece in thirds and each 1/3 was cut as shown. I inked all the edges with Burnt Umber Palette Hybrid ink and adhered on the darker brown cardstock that was cut just a bit larger than the original image. The bliss is from the Sparkle set also stamped in Burnt Umber on the Birch cardstock, edged with the Burnt Umber and layered on the darker brown. I used my 1/4" circle punch and got 2 circles to adhere and I added Crystal Lacquer. I tried to do a close-up (shown below) but it isn't a very clear picture.
