Less is more sketch

This is my entry for the Less is More challenge this week, which is to use the sketch provided. I've used the Artsy Floral collection of stamps from Creative Expressions for this card. (Yeah another set sees ink!!!)  I masked off the top and bottom of the card and used just part of the large stamp that is the set. Then I was going to use the big daisy, but somehow it didn't look right so instead I went for the take part of the flower from the same set and then taking the middle section and mounting it up for a 3d effect. Now if I had the SU stamp pad in Tempting turquoise this would look much more co-ordinated, but this colour was the closet to the ribbon I had! Quite pleased with the effect and thanks to Chrissie and Mandi for pushing me to do something different.
