One thing I love about the SCS Inspiration Challenge is that it challenges me to do things I've never done. When I saw this amazing Leather Flower Bracelet from Agate Christina , I was really inspired by the color combination ... and those beautiful chocolate blooms ... something I probably never would have considered on my own.
I found some beautiful velvet patterned specialty paper tucked away in my stash and I die cut multiple sizes of Tattered Blooms for layers. I also cut the small bloom from a soft gold shimmer paper, as well as some detailed flourishes.
Next I went searching for some textured purple paper and put my design together using this week's Retro Sketch. I decided this would work well for a wedding or anniversary card, so I added a Congrats sentiment by Hero Arts.

Instead of looking like the dying flowers in my garden that are brown, this is absolutely GORGEOUS! This is also a fab color combo. This is one of my favorites of your cards. I love the layout too.
What a wonderful site! I've several ideas and can't wait to play a little later today.
