CAS-Colour and Sketches

Its Friday Eve and that means its time for our next challenge at CAS-Colour and Sketches. This week we want to see what cards you are inspired to make using this sketch:

It now feels like spring may be around the corner as we have sunshine now, cold but sun! So I decided to celebrate this with some spring flowers.
I have really made a CAS version of this sketch and also flipped it. 

The top flower has been stamped and die cut and popped up on a foam pad for dimension.
Both flowers are from the Stampin' Up 'secret garden' set. I decided to colour both of the stamps using promarkers. 
I felt the background card needed some subtle stamping so used a PTI flower set, first stamping off the ink to give this faded, 'barely' there look. Some brown twine to finish my card off. I haven't added a sentiment as I felt the front didn't need it-an extra bonus as I am not sure who this going to be for yet!

Our DT have a great variety of cards for you, take a look here and then get out your crafting goodies and get stamping!

I will also enter this into the following challenges:
