With Love Simon Says Stamp Challenge Card

The minute I saw this sweet stamp set, I had to have it.  I love these flowers, their graceful sway and lovely blossoms.  I decided to do them first in colored pencil, taking my inspiration from Debbie Hughes.    Debbie demonstrates how she colors with colored pencil.  Click on her highlighted name to see her post and tutorial.
I stamped my flowers onto kraft card stock using VersaMark clear ink, and colored them with Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils.  I fussy-cut the right side and added it to a piece of textured card stock, creating an A2 size card.  I folded the front of the card back, which gave it an interesting z-fold.
The sentiment is embossed onto a darker card stock panel, and I used foam tape to adhere.  Simon Says Stamp moonstone sequins finish off my card. 

Stamps are Simon Says Stamp clear set Bouquet Of Thanks SSS101748. 

I am adding my card to these challenges:
