Little Blossoms

Hello.  As promised, I am back before a week has passed.  Today a made a sweet little 4.25 by 4.25 square card.  I am going to try a new challenge at Skipping Stones blog.  It is a sketch challenge.  Now I did move the greeting to the top of the flowers because I thought the leaves would look silly up there.  My colorway is from the Playdate Cafe challenge.  Navy, Peach and Stone (gray).
I started with the Soft Stone cardstock from Papertrey Ink.  The stamp set is also from them.  I die cut the flowers and leaves in a 4" square piece of cardstock with the corners rounded.  Then laid it over my base card and carefully traced the images through the holes with a pencil. This gave me the lines to stamp within.  Navy and peach ink are from Stampin Up and the Soft Stone is from PTI.  After stamping I erased the pencil and mounted the diecut layer with foam tape to pop it up.
Sketch and color way are below.

I am also going to enter this in the Simon Says Stamp "Just Put A Stamp On It" challenge. I am also going to enter this in the Moxie Fab "Repetition" challenge too.
Thanks for stopping by!
