I made the card with brown cardstock.
Then embossed a piece of pink cardstock and used the Tea Dye ink pad on it.
Next I applied Scor-Tape on the back of the pink paper and attached it to the card.
Then I colored around the edges of the image with a black colored pencil. 
I used the Plus Tape Runner on the back of the image and attached it to the card.
Then added glue on the back of the leaf die cut and added it to the card.
I couldn't find a flower the color I wanted to use with the image, so I used the ink blending tool and the Wild Rose ink on each of the flowers. I love how they turned out.
Finally I glued them onto the leaf die cut.

...Here's how I made it..
I embossed a piece of marbled yellow cardstock using Couture Creations Embossing Folder 'Smooch'. Then I die cut the doily, basket and tag with the same cardstock. Next I die cut the basket again using brown cardstock - saving pieces to use on the yellow basket. I then die cut and embossed the flowers with red/orange/light yellow/dark yellow cardstock. Then I die cut and embossed the leaves with a dark green cardstock. Next I made the card base with white cardstock. Using the distressing tool I went around the card, lightly on the fold edge. Then around the embossed paper. Then I used the distress ink pad on the edges of the card, on the embossed paper, doily, basket and tag. I applied Scor-Tape to the back of the embossed paper and attached it to the card. Next I tied a piece of hemp cord onto the tag. Then I applied Scotch Foam Mounting Tape to the back of the doily, added the tag behind it and attached it to the card. Next I applied clear glue to the back of the basket and attached it to the center of the doily. Using tweezers, I glued the cut out pieces from the brown basket into the marbled yellow basket. I cut the brown handle out, then glued it onto the marbled yellow basket handle. Next I glued the flower pieces together. Then used Scor-Tape to attach the center flower and used Scotch Foam Mounting Tape to attach the other two flowers. Using my bow making tool, I made a bow with the Sheer Ombré - Ribbon and glued it onto the side of the basket.

Using the ink blending tool and the Sugarplum ink pad, I inked over the butterfly on the stencil. Then using the ink blending tool and the Wild Rose ink pad, I inked over the stain on the stencil.

Then I made the card base with white cardstock. After attaching Scor-Tape to the back of the paper, I added it to the card.
