Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - It's Sketchy Challenge

Hello lovely blogging friends, thank you for stopping by again.
I am thrilled to be the guest designer for  Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge during the month of August. I feel so privileged, to work alongside such talented ladies.
This weeks hostess is the very talented, Heather, who has asked us to create something with a 'Thankful' theme, and to follow the sketch below...
For my card I chose the beautiful 'With Gratitude' set of stamps.

I love this set, the flowers are so pretty and easy to colour.  I also love the many ways of saying 'ThankYou' with the sweet sentiments stamps.
I stamped my flowers onto an oval cut from white card stock, then coloured with PM's.  I then used pop dots to give some dimension and added my image onto one of the Floral Ovals dies.
To complete my card, I added some patterned papers, a ribbon band, and a sequin strip. I also cut two coordinating pieces of card into tails, then layered them on top of one another.  I then stamped the sentiment, which is also from the 'With Gratitude' set.  Then I finally added my oval with image.

Thank you for stopping by, and please visit the FTTC team for some wonderful inspiration!

Sasha it's not because of that amazing flower stamp (which is gorgeous too) but especially because of the design and your choice of colors and coloring skils. Stunning!
