BASIC GREY CHALLENGE - TEXTURE

Wowza! This card has it all! I used the Basic Grey Clear Stamps called "Two Scoops/ Swirlie." This is the ONLY BG item I own so if I get a chance to do another challenge, I'm afraid they will see this stamp set again, and again, and again! That is, unless I manage to budget in a new BG item...
The criteria for the Basic Grey Challenge was that I had to use Texture.TEXTURE: I used the cuttlebug to put a background texture on top of my Basic Grey stamp. I then added a second layer of paper that I punched with SU spiral and a Martha Stewart border punch and then added another swirl BG stamp to this layer. I then added 3 layers of a Build a Blossom flower (found at http://crafterskitchen.blogspot.com and is copyrighted by Jak Heath). There are a variety of these flowers and they are so pretty when completed! Oh, and THEN I used a Dollar Tree star punch to punch 3 stars that I layered on top of the 2nd strip of paper that I had added with the punched borders!
I also inked up this card with a black pigment ink and SU inks from the Basic Bold collection: Pink Passion & Tempting Turquoise.
DISCLAIMER: I had a lot of fun with this challenge. I wasn't sure that this would look okay, but it seems to work once I finished adding all that texture!
