Caardvarks Sketch Challenge - Wednesday

Wednesday's sketch for the Caardvarks Challenge:


Here is my card based on the sketch...


This is a mix of old and new stamps for me... I have had the real flowers in the background from Hero Arts for a long time and these are some of my favorites from them. There real flower series is so pretty and versatile. The background is one of there new Design Blocks called Antique Flower Background. The background is clear embossed and distress inked (Antique Linen) over the embossing. The front flowers is a Penny Black Stamp with birds stamped as accents.
The scalloped pieces were traced from journaling cards I had purchased previously. I used them as a template.
