Make My Monday Sketch and Floral Challenge

Good morning all on a very warm and sunny Monday. I hope you all had a lovely weekend with some sunshine and managed to sit in the garden for a while as I did.
As it's Monday, we have a new challenge over at Make My Monday and it's the last one with this month's flower theme - it's a lovely sketch from Jacqueline this time which I really enjoyed doing.

I've gone for one of my favourite colour combinations, lilac and green, and have used a gorgeous iris stamp from Circa Design which I stamped with VersaFine Smokey Gray and coloured with Prisma pencils.
I set the floral panel on an embossed lilac mat, larger on one side so that I could added some punched flowers made from inked paper and pearls to tie in with the sketch.
My background squares are green Bazzill card embossed with the Craft Concepts butterflies folder and some decorated paper from my bits box. It was created using Artifacts stamps from The Stamp Bug and VersaColor inks in purple, lilac and pink.
I finished off with a sentiment from Hobby Art over-stamped with flourishes and Lilac Posies Memento ink for added texture.

You have until 12 midnight on Saturday 2 July to enter and good luck!

My card is for the following challenges:
Paper Sundaes - Choose At Least 2 from Purple, Gems. Wings, Paper Piercing
Sew Many Cards - Dry Embossing
Stampin' For The Weekend - My Favourite Things (Making my own background papers, dry embossing and my Prisma pencils for colouring)

Thanks for looking,
Fliss xx
PS: Can't wait for the next challenge as July is my month to choose the theme and I'm sure that those of you who know me can probably guess what it is (clue - it begins with a v)
