A sketch challenge - Friend

Hi everyone... I have another card to share with you today or rather tonight (lol). I did this card for Lauren's Saturday Sketch. She offered up 3 choices and I picked the first one. Its definitely a classic and came together very nicely.

I picked one of my favorite Clear Dollar Stamps images from a set called Asian Plants. I just love the pot and plant image. I stamped it in Versacolor Black and used clear embossing powder and a heat gun. I then colored the branches or more like outlined them with a Copic Marker and did the same with my pot. I then stamped the pot again, colored, then used Crystal Lacquer from Sakura to create that shine to the pot. I then used pop dots to attach my pot. Then, I got my flower soft out and used the shamrock green for the "moss" and the baby blue for the blossoms. The designer paper I used is a Close to my Heart Level 2 pack called Emporium. I love the blues and greens in this set. I used my circle nesties to cut out my flower pot as well as the 1/2 circles behind the image. The sentiment was punched out using an oval punch and the buttons are from Stampin Up!

Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great rest of your weekend.
