WSC96 Tango & Blues happy flower

Good morning everyone!  I was able to make a card from the weekend sketch challenge yesterday and it's still the weekend!  The sketch is one that I adore, so easy to work with.  Thanks Beate!  I did not stamp much at all for this sketch, but I was really pleased with this new sheet of paper that I bought last week from the DCWV green line called Woodland Blue Flower.  Love the colours in it and the weight and texture of this paper/card stock is luscious.  I followed the sketch with the different panels using blue bayou dp polka dots and the last in color blue card stock baja blue. (SU retired blue bayou is the PERFECT match)  I used a CB embossing folder (exotic floral) on the square piece and sponged the edges with blue bayou.  The orange square under all of the panels is tango tangerine, another perfect match for the colour in this dp.  The sentiment is from PaperTrey Ink from the Autumn Abundance set.  The little stickered half pearls are from MakingMemories, the Halloween pack that is currently available at Michael's.  The flower is a Prima that I placed over a blossom die cut that I made using the Spellbinder dies and the brad is also from MM.  Thanks for visiting and Thank you Beate for this delightful sketch!
