Agh - I struggled with this sketch. Third attempt, so this is what gets uploaded.
I chose my papers first - Basic Grey Sugar Rush. Then I thought that Flourishes Year of Flowers would surely provide a suitable stamp to work with them. I chose the amaryllis...stamped with Versafine black on watercolour paper and coloured with H2Os. Edges distressed, layered on BG, edges distressed. The green panel is embossed with the Cuttlebug leafy ef and sponged. Sentiment is Hero Arts. I didn't want to add another flower in the bottom corner and was lucky enough to find a big button the perfect colour. I had to add some gold Stickles to give definition to the edges, but I don't like it. Outside edges sponged in dark grey.

This is so colorful!! Love the amaryllis--the stripes you gave them tie in perfectly with that pretty striped DP!! The button was the perfect choice to complete this sketch. You may not be satisfied with this card, but it truly is beautiful and is sure to make someone's day. Nicely done :)
