Flowers card

Here's a card I made for Color Throwdown, Freshly Made Sketches, and CAS-ual Fridays:
I used vellum for the first time on a card. The challenge at Cas-ual Fridays was to use acetate or vellum. I stamped on it, then heat set it, so it wouldn't smudge. I made the woodgrain and the flowers to mimic the inspiration photo from Color Throwdown. I really like that photo!

Materials used:
Paper: Bamboo, Desert Sand, and Smoothie cardstock, Clear Vellum (not CTMH)
Stamps: Card Word Puzzle, Universal Backgrounds
Inks: Cranberry, Smoothie, Sweet Leaf, and Desert Sand
Other: Bliss level 2 Assortment, Cranberry bulk Grosgrain Ribbon, Bronze Bitty Brads
