Here's my version of this sketch. I thought this one was really fun to make. I love these colors together.

To make this card, I first stamped the Classic Floral stamp and colored with pencils and shaded the areas around the flowers with blue chalk. I cut each of the flowers out individually and matted them with the same color cardstock as the flower petals. For example, the pink flower was matted in pink cardstock. Then I matted each one again in light blue cardstock.

Next, I cut a light pink cardstock panel and arranged the 3 flowers on it. One at the top, one in the middle and one at the bottom. I then, matted it again in dark pink cardstock and added 2 hot pink brads to the top and bottom areas of the middle flower.

I made the finished card base from hot pink cardstock. It measures 8" x 4". I cut out a light pink mat for it, and then adhered the striped patterned paper over the mat. I attached the hot pink ribbon vertically over the patterned paper, adhered it, and then tied a knot in the center of it. This entire piece was adhered to the front of the cardstock base.

I adhered the matted image piece to the left side of the ribbon, as shown.
