Stippled Lace ~ CCMC263 & PP158

Ahhhh, it feels so good to stamp for challenges again!  I finally gained a little time to do so and with school starting up again soon, I'll have even more time!  Yay!  I also got a new camera, so these are experimental pictures. 
I stamped this card for Create with Connie and Mary Challenge 263, which is a sketch challenge.  For the color part, I used The Paper Players 158.
I started by rolling out my Travel Journal and Viola's Lace wheels in Pear Pizzaz ink on Vanilla cardstock.  I trimmed out the lacey side of the strip.  Next, I stamped the flowers from Stippled Blossoms in Crisp Cantaloupe and Strawberry Slush and cut them out.  I stamped a few leaves in Pear Pizzaz and cut them out also. Everything was layered onto a Crumb Cake base that I had dry embossed with the Honeycomb EF. 
I played with the arrangement of the flowers a bit and finally settled on this.  I couple of them are popped up on dimensionals.  A few pearls in the center and a flag sentiment and it's done!
