Penny Black Sketch Challenge

This weeks challenge at Penny Black is to create a card using this sketch below. I tried to get this card made all week, but didn't get around to making my card until this afternoon. This is my take on the sketch. The flower panel comes from Sizzix's Dots & Flowers Set (655838). I inked the embossing folder with Hero Arts soft green and ran it through my cuttlebug machine. Then I punched out four panels from Stampin Up's postage stamp punch and stamped the images onto each stamp punch panel. To finish off my card, I added a sentiment banner and placed the ribbon between the small square panels.

The stamps used are Penny Black: Flowers & Wishes 30-047, to you 30-067 (leaves), and Flower Gallery 30-031. Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments. Hope that everybody's weekend was great.

This is a great sketch Sue and you have made a wonderful representation of it, I love the pastel palette, but adding the orange lifts the whole piece and gives it a Spark.
