Another Thank You challenge card

I made this card for The Sweet Stop, Sweet N Sassy Stamps Sketch Challenge.  #SSS170.  Their sketch caught my eye.  First it is so simple which I like that.  I’m not a huge fan of tons of layers and I love adding a bow to a card.  Take a look, isn’t it a sketch you should keep handy and use over and over again.

Knowing I was going to make another Thank You card I went through my stamps and found a set I had not used.  It’s by Hampton Arts the Ditto line.  If you shop at Michaels then you should know this line.  Very Cheep and they have some really cute stamps.   The set has two stamps the large saying and then a smaller stamp that is a scroll with a heart and two little flowers. 
I started searching though all my flowers and could not find any small enough to add to the card.  I did find the last two I had of these very little flowers… so perfect but they were white.  That would not work since I was stamping on white cardstock.  I thought, what if I colored them?  Here is a picture showing you how white they were.

I grabbed three of my red Copic, starting with the deepest at the top and going to the lightest at the tips.  copics used on Thanks for everything
I think they turned out great and now I think maybe I just need to buy white flowers and I can make them any color I need.  LOL   I won’t but now I know I can hi-lite flowers and give them different dimension. cxolored white flowers red
Have I lost you.. I got kinda of crazy about these silly flowers but I guess I surprised myself by taking a situation that I didn’t have the right item and turned it into something that worked out perfect for what I needed..
On to the finished product. 
Thanks for everything

Thanks again for stopping by and please tell your friends. I would love more followers.

Very pretty. Love how you colored the flowers to match the paper (which is very pretty!). Thank you for playing along with us at The Sweet Stop this week.
