Polka Doodles Challenge Treasure

I was able to (not literally) kill two birds with one stone
making this card. I discovered a brand new challenge
site Polka Doodles. My Mom has been bugging me to
make her a Southwest card and I thought could use their
sketch to do so. I've have the background paper forever
as well as the handmade papers for the top flower layers.
The stamp is a very old one from a now-defunct Phoenix
company colored with Prismas and OMS. I made the
flowers with a CB flower die set and added some little
self-adhesive metal dots on the card corners.
Thanks for dropping in on your holiday weekend.
