OSCC No patterned paper

Good morning everyone! Its saturday and time for a new challenge at One Stop Craft Challenge, and our theme this week is 'No patterned paper'. Oh I found this challenge so difficult! I love my design papers, they are my favourite part of a project. However I had a good go at it and decided to use my Coredinations Chocolate box cardstock, which I embossed with Swiss dots and a paisley embossing folder. I then sanded these designs down to show the colour of the cardstock under the brown coating. Next I tore the Swiss dot embossed cardstock to show the gorgeous colour underneath.
I started my card layout by mounting pearlescent slightly aqua cardstock on the white cardstock to soften the contrast with the Coredinations cardstock. I then mounted the paisley embossed cardstock on an aqua glitter card and placed this to one side of my card. I placed a tilda stamped with Memento and coloured with Promarkers on the swiss dots embossed cardstock then placed this panel on the card. To embellish I used Craftime polka dot ribbon and matching flower. I also added a button and a butterfly punched with Xcut punch from the glitter cardstock.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz Challenges: Embossing
Fab 'n' Funky Challenges: Distressed or Torn
Top Tip Tuesday: Layer it up
Sweet Stamps: Lots of layers

Thank you for looking and for your lovely comments :-)
