Back to flowers!

This card is being entered into two challenges - one is an inspiration picture with
4 Crafty Chicks and the other a sketch with Stampin' Queen Sketch Challenge #1.

From the picture I used the colours SU Tempting Turquoise, Concord Crush, Old Olive and Whisper White. The stamp sets used are Fabulous Florets, Clearly for You, Just Believe and a SAB set called Clearly for You. Elegant Bouquet is the embossing folder used.

I stamped the main flower twice and just cut out the centre piece on one and raised it with Dimensionals.

Now to think about what to do for a few more cards and challenges!

Way to go on hitting two challenges perfectly. That inspiration picture is a great one, and you nailed the colors perfectly. I love that sketch too and how you did it as an A2 size instead of a square. Great job! Best, Curt
