Sketch inspiration

I wanted to get back into card making after a break so I searched for a sketch to give me inspiration. I found this Stamplorations sketch:


I often read the blog posts and love the techniques and inspiration there but rarely get round to joining in. This time I have. 

 I made the stamped panels by cutting them out, holding them together with a very small amount of tacky glue then stamping the flowers. I embossed in silver, coloured with promarkers and added some gems. My plan was to emboss in bronze but I couldn't find the powder, then afterwards remembered where it was. But actually, I like the turquoise and silver look. I masked them and added the light green leaves.
I wasn't very happy with the background, I'm still not really. I made the panels too big so there was not much room for the background and the panels are a bit lost on it. Also I felt there was no room for a sentiment.
Anyway, there it is, I hope you like it.
