Just Us Girls #174 - Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday!  I'm posting this late because I forgot last night was Friday and that I had to get a card done.  I'm a last minute kinda girl, so that gets me into trouble sometimes!  But, I couldn't miss a JUGs sketch challengeVicki created this lovely sketch this week.
I won this stamp set from Flourishes a couple of weeks ago by commenting on their Facebook page.  I couldn't believe it, because I rarely win anything I enter!  This set is called Roses are Red, but I decided to color them in peachy color.  When I got married, my girls carried Sonia Roses (see the picture below).  They wore a shrimp colored dress and these roses were such a beautiful compliment.  I had stephanotis in my bouquet, and the little flowers in this image I believe are those flowers.  I paired it with paper from Graphic 45's Once Upon a Springtime and olive cardstock.  Some Prima pearl flouishes finish it off.  I also added some Star Dust Stickles to the flowers.
Here is the picture of my inspiration for the colors.
The JUGs DT has some beautiful cards for your inspiration.  Stop by these blogs to see for yourself!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Oh wow, Lisa! You have coloured the image to perfection! It's stunning. Love the coral and olive together and what a lovely shape to frame the flowers. Great touch with the rounded corners too!
