A flower for you!

I kinda fell down on my posting this week as I've not been creative. Today I finished a card that I started Monday. This sketch came from Heather's Monday Sketch with a change in the ribbon size.

I'm using up paper scraps as I have baskets full! The stamps used are Gerbera Daisy, Joyful Tags, Build-a-Background & Enjoy Nature hostess sets, and a retired set for the Hello on the tag. I used Noir, Orangerie, and Raw Sienna PH inks and colored the daisy with my Prismacolor Pencils.

If you look closely at the flower petals you can see where I highlighted with my Stardust Clear Gel pen. I also used it on the veins of the leaves. I also thought the button was perfect for the flower center but just had to add a piece of white scrappers floss for more fun.

So, do you forgive me for being late with my post? I am working on a blog candy drawing for next month. It'll be 24 Christmas cards with matching envys.
