This is my card for Katie. It was much better in my head, but I am overall pleased with it. Started with Fifth Ave Floral stamp, masked it and stamped/masked a bunch of times. Colored with Barely Banana, Summ Sun, Apricot Appeal, Marigold Morning. Then came the part I am not 100% happy about, adding the gold to the stamens.
I had an awesome gold marker back in the day, but of course I cannot find it for the life of me. So I bought a new one, and it ended up being WAY too thick to color this image. So I had to paint the gold on. Well I will keep my eye out for that marker next time I am in the craft store. I am kicking myself for losing it!
The sentiment was printed on my computer. It says "Always remember that the future comes one day at a time. - Dean Acheson"

I love the way you've masked and stamped these flowers coming up from the side - the colors are soft and lovely. I know how you feel losing something and needing just that very thing to finish it off just the way you want! Been there, done that! But your card turned out beautifully!
