Papercraft Star #147

Our challenge theme this week at Papercraft Star is handmade flowers.  Any creation is fair game, just be sure to include a handmade flower.  Here is the inspiration photo, which is use if you choose.

My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at The Paper Players.  My crafting time has been limited lately, so I combined a few of my favorite challenge sites for my card.  Here is the original sketch design-

The colors and patterns in my card were chosen based on the inspiration photo challenge at Just Us Girls Challenge.  I love the yellow, grey and white color combination!

I  kept the inside of my card blank to leave more room for a hand written sentiment.
