FTTC55 -- Iwona's Flower Challenge

Hello everyone~
It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC55)!! It is the last Tuesday of the month so we have a guest challenge host! This month's guest is Iwona Palamountain (Chupa). Iwona lives in Australia! She is challenging us to use flowers! Whether they are printed flower designer papers, stamped, punch created, or store bought, put some flowers on your card this week! We would love to see what you create!

A GREAT NEWS!! The NEW Flourishes store is opened now!!! I know you will love the new beautiful home page :):)

My card for the challenge was used I Love Roses set and the sentiment was from Sweet Violets set. I stamped each rose image on classic ivory mat with Memento rich cocoa using masking technique. Then I sponged the stamped mat with Memento inks (tangelo and cantaloupe). The main image was also stamped with rich cocoa and colored with Copic markers.
The brown dp strip was from BG Nook & Pantry dp and it was layered on the orange strip that was punched with the decorative border punch. For the finishing touch, I added the pearls.

The layout was based on the sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping blog (FTL78). I'm a kind of hooked on their sketches :):)
