Flowers are the music of life

The next Splitcoaststampers Love Fest challenge is a sketch.  (found here)  It's a very versatile layout and resulted in this card.  I really like it!

I chose to use earthy colors this time.  I embossed the Canyon Clay piece with a cool diamond pattern and it adds a rich texture to the card.  The patterned paper is from an older 6x6 pad by Basic Grey called Green at Heart.  I layered everything with Dark Chocolate cardstock.  The sentiment is stamped on a Vintage Cream oval, and the flower was created using both Canyon Clay cardstock and Vintage Cream that was stamped with the matching ink.  A dark metallic brad holds it all together.

Stamps:  Beautiful Blooms II (Papertrey Ink); Floral Symphony (Verve)
Paper:  Canyon Clay, Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate (Papertrey Ink)
Ink:  Canyon Clay, Dark Chocolate (Papertrey Ink)
Misc:  Beautiful Blooms II #3 dies, Double-Ended Banners die (Papertrey Ink); Standard Ovals Large die, Classic Scalloped Ovals Large die (Spellbinders); Diamonds in Diamonds embossing folder (Sizzix); Metallic Basics brad (Making Memories)
