Floral Sketch card

As soon as I saw the sketch over at Tuesday morning sketches the other day I knew that this was the card I wanted to make.  The design team had some great inspirational pieces over there.  Once I got the background and base layers done I realized this would be really pretty with seashells and swirls also but I already had my heart set on this floral stamp.  I am very pleased how it turned out.
The pattern papers for the background is from ms. sparkle & co. - Wood Grain... I just love that whitewashed wood look.
The floral stamp and sentiment are from HOTP -  Simply Susan stamp set
I stamped the sentiment in purple and I heat Embossed the floral stamp in black.
I colored with spectrum noir markers - Purple Bloom, petunia, fresh citrus, AB3, LV1
I decided to keep this one simple but I wanted to give it some extra touches so I dug out some of my sparkly gumdrops from YNS (Your Next Stamp)
Black for the flower centers and I decided to add two blue to the leaf swirl but I darkened the color just a little bit with my spectrum noir marker AB3 to match it a little closer.

I am entering into these fun challenges:
