adventure with bits & bobs

I was thinking about the box o' bits & bobs because that leftover green tag/mat was being relegated the other day.  The yellowish and coral flower below has been cycling back and forth for about a week between the pile o' bits & bobs (that need to be filed into the box), and the inside of the stamp set case, because I thought that would remind me to use it.  Fortunately, I saw the Spring Wreath challenge at Fusion Card Challenge; I think it fits perfectly with both the photo and the sketch:
stamp set - Amazing You; ink - Old Olive, Calypso Coral, Basic Black Archival; Stampin' Blends - Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight; card stock - Peekaboo Peach, Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Whisper White; designer series paper - Wood Textures; Big Shot with Simple Stripes Textured Impressions™ embossing folder

Looking at the photo, now, I wish I'd left a margin on the single flower or cut off the margin on the flower with greenery.  Even so, I'm excited about being able to combine both the sketch and the inspiration of the flowers and greenery, the wood, the colors, the inset stripes - I think this is the first time I've ever been able to combine both :)
