Shabby Tea Room "2 - 4 - 6"

I haven't played for awhile at the Shabby Tea Room.  Their fun challenge this week is  "2 - 4 - 6": create a card or project with TWO patterned papers (manufactured or handmade), FOUR buttons, and SIX layers!  Fun!  Here's my entry:



supplies: pink parchment cardstock, pinkpaislee "Butterfly Garden" dp, white, pale pink and pink vellum for flowers, Hero Arts stamps S5324 Simple Frame, CG291 Three Dotted Flowers, CL383 Antique Engravings (butterfly), CL272 All Occasion Messages, S5101 Raindrop Background, tattered rose and vintage photo distress inks, versamark ink and white embossing powder, hand-dyed seam binding, 1 medium and 3 tiny pink buttons, paper doily



I'm still not sure I understand about the 6 layers, so just to make sure,my flower is 6 layers, using 3 shades of vellum.  I stamped the base background using the Raindrop Background, and the 2nd is a printed dp from pinkpaislee.

Since this uses another of my favorite stamps, I'm also entering it into the Simon Says Stamp and Show "Your Favorite Stamp" challenge.
