Bring me flowers

Hey there,
I had some unexpected time in my craft room today and here is the result.
A card made, using the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.

I used my Hero Arts set, stamping the flowers in different colours. Then, I die cut the flower and used this as a mask, before stamping the swirly leaves (these are green irl, but they look a bit grey on the photo).
The strip down the side had me stumped for ages. I tried all sorts of ribbon and twine, but nothing looked right.
In the end, I opted for a plain old strip of card, popped up on foam pads.

This is beautiful Caroline. I adore your interpretation of the sketch and the use of bold, summery colours. What a clever idea to move the image across the panels the further down you moved. A Stunning card. Laura xx
