Makeesha's Sketch Challenge #11

Hi there... Keesh has given us a rather tricky sketch this week. Well tricky for me anyway. Anytime I see a sketch with a big circle or half a circle I get scared. But I'm getting used to tracing around cups, bowls and dinner plates and cutting out free hand. For this card I've combined a few favourite colours of mine. My favourite in colour from last year, Purely Pomegranate, my favourite in colour this year Kiwi Kiss and my favourite all time colour, Chocolate Chip. I think these colours look great together. So here is the sketch.
For this card I've used Chocolate Chip card stock for the base and then DSP's in Kiwi Kiss and Chocolate Chip from Bella Rose. I've used Fifth Ave Floral stamp set for the image using Chocolate Chip ink on Purely Pomegranate and Kiwi Kiss card stock. These have been cut out and put on the rectangle of Whisper White. I've also cut a strip of Kiwi Kiss to make some grass and used my two way glue pen and dazzling diamonds for the centre of the flower. The sentiment is from Seeing Spots and I've also done some paper piercing and used some Purely Pomegranate ribbon and brown glitter brads. I've also jazzed up the inside of the card. I might try and retake the photo in daylight to see if I can get it any better but until then, here is my card. Thanks for looking.
