Vintage-y Happy New Year

Good Monday morning!
Hope that everyone had a great weekend and that you have eaten up all of the Thanksgiving left-overs :)
Here is a card that I made using the Basic Grey "Curio" 6 X 6 paper pad.  Vintage-y and warm.  Flourishes has a sketch challenge going on and this is what I came up with.  You know that there are yellow paperwhites and peachy coloured ones too...well, here are my yellow ones with a blush center.  Flourishes released this stamp set earlier this month and being the flower fanatic that I am and always will be, I had to purchase it.  When I saw the sketch, I thought this would work well with the largest image in the set.  I stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink and then coloured with Copics.  Then came the cutting.  I placed some dimensional spots behind the cut out image and placed over all of the card layers.  The little orange spots are punched out from the Curio paper.  Below is a close-up of the flowers at a different angle.
I would love to make a bunch of these to send out, but have to simplify the design a little :)
Thanks for taking a peek today!
Cheers, Chriss
