Scandinavian Flowers--Take Two!

Hi, my friends!
I had fun making my last card with this Scandinavian Stamp from Neat and Tangled. I am popping in to share with you my 2nd version. You can see my first version here.
I purposely chose the whimsical flower images ...and this was the result.
true friends
 I didn't really have a "plan" when I stamped the design-- >which was OK :)

I colored the images with Spectrum Noir Pencils. And then... out of a whim, I decided to use a stencil with gold embossing paste. I was not sure I'd like that, but I went with it. I then made the die cut to simulate the sky with the bright sun-ray like pattern paper. Like I said, no plans... :)

In the end, I think the sentiment fits perfectly in this.

LOVE these quirky little flowers and think your coloring juxtaposed against the stencilling really makes this card.
