Collage Stamping and a Sketch

Good Morning!  The wonderfully talented ladies over @ Creative Sketches have a new challenge this week!  There is a sketch, but also a technique!  The technique is called collage stamping.  That's where you create something while layering stamped images.  Pretty straight forward, and fun!  So, if you want something challenging, please play along! 
Here is my card:

I used First Edition DSP on my first layer and stamped the flourish from Friends 24-7 on it.  The second layer is a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I first stamped the en francais in versa mark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Sponged on some Old Olive classic ink, and stamped the flourish from Elements of Style in the same ink.  Rubbed the 'paper' with a Kleenex to remove the standing ink on the embossed areas (emboss resist).  The lilacs are an OLD retired stamp set (2006).   I added some crochet trim with a few tags and a butterfly!  Viola!
Thank you for looking, and I hope you play along with us!
