Citrus Bouquet ~ HSS295, JUGS451

Hey there stampers!  Today's card is for Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #295 -- a sketch challenge.  Let's talk about this sketch for a moment.  It's so cool because the sky is the limit with it.  You could go CAS or get a little more layered, like my card.  I love a sketch like this that give a little free reign.  
 I incorporated the inspiration photo from Just Us Girls #451.
I was loving the colors and script from the challenge photo and jumped at the chance to use some of our newer colors!  I used Pineapple Punch for the bright yellow, Grapefruit Grove for the spiky looking flowers, and Crushed Curry along with Mango Melody sponged around the edges for the two flowers on each side.  I used Granny Apple Green for the the stems and leaves.

We'd love to have you join us for our sketch challenge at HSS!  Come on and play!
Here's a list of my supples.....
Stamps: Beautiful Bouquet, French Script (retired)
Ink: Grapefruit Grove, Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, Crushed Curry, Crumb Cake
Paper: Granny Apple Green, White, Grapefruit Grove, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Bouquet Bunch Framelits, Pineapple punch ribbon, Pinewood Planks TIEF

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
