No Embellishments Allowed

I made this card following Melissa's sketch challenge at Stamp TV and the challenge at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday where Dee challenged us to use limited supplies. We can only use use ink, stamps, paper, punches, die cuts, and coloring tools. No embellishments allowed. I used an aster stamp and colored with copics and a marker. I love how the colors of the flowers go with the colors of the papers. Finished with a sentiment stamp.
Stamps: Flourishes "A Year of Flowers"
                             set 3
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
       SU Always Artichoke
Marker: Memento Bamboo Leaves
Copics: V000, V05, Y13, Y17
Paper: K&CO Patterns
           White and Green CS from Stash
Punch: Martha Stewart Scallop Dot

I really love the Flourishes stamps....so crisp and so much detail.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
