Really my card was going to originally have a bunch of flowers like her card does but when I went into my craft room, this flower screamed at me to use it. So Susie's frame and pretty flowers inspired me but there was no room to put a sentiment after I got done because this flower took over the card!
I wish I knew the exact name/origin of this flower but I think it is by Stamplistic. I took a card class at a recent CK convention and several of these images were provided to make another card. The flower is gorgeous (Carol if you remember the name of the company can you let me know?).
Susie, your gallery is precious and you definitely have a special gift. Hope you are enjoying your week!

OMG, we picked the same CARD sis!!! I started out with the idea of a trellis of flowers too, but it didn't happen. That's why each of us are so different and yet inspired by others' creations. I'm in LOVE with your beautiful flower. Who needs a sentiment with this one. The flower, b/g print and nestie say it all. Way 2 go!

Oh, Nancy, your expertise in coloring this is magnificent - you have added dimension merely by your awesome shading, not to mention the multiple layers you have it popped up on!! Super card to honor Susie this week - such a talented stamper - and I know she will love how you were inspired by her card!!! BIG HUGS, my sweet friend!

Nancy, this card is gorgeous! I think the flower may be a peony. I had a very large peony in my garden of this exact color. The black Spellbinders die used as a trellis is a wonderful contrast too. Thank you for playing in the FS Challenge. I've loved seeing your take on this card. And honestly, anything that says Metallic Cream Chalk has my name on it! *laughing* It sounds wonderful : )
