Flowery Thank You Card

2nd post for the day. Please click here or scroll down to see the Mothers Day Card for OWH - Part 2.

This is flowery Thank You card that I did for 3 Challenges,

1) For Hero Arts March Challenge of Fabulous Flowers.

2) I was browsing through some blogs and found these Retro Sketches and loved their Sketch #2.

3) Color Combination from colourQ #128

I used the Hero Arts and Sizzix Combination stamp set - Bold Pop Designs and the sentiment is also a Hero Arts. It was a free set that I got with my order (CL175).

I used PTI Background Basics Retro and stamped the image on PTI Spring Moss paper and layered it on some PTI New Leaf CS. I did not have Wild Wasabi CS, but did have the ink pad - so I used that to stamp the background image as well as the flowers. I wanted some green pearls, so I colored the white ones with some copics. I kind of like how this card turned out.
