Be your own kind of beautiful...

Hello! Just popping in with a quick entry for the current Unity {be inspired} Challenge:

This was actually one of those accidental cards - I had picked up some Memento Luxe inks and wanted to give them a try - so I grabbed a flower stamp image from the Unity November 2013 KOTM and stamped it repeatedly in the different colors of ink. Then, I though it looked kind of fun, so I fussy cut them all out, and used my Wink of Stella on the center of them - which smudged the ink just a little, and added a fun sparkle effect. I stamped my sentiment from the current January Kit of the Month on vellum, layered everything together on my cardbase, and finished off with a bit of Baker's Twine, thread, and a wood veneer that I inked with the red ink so it would coordinate. 

I used the color combo - although I notice my colors are a bit more on the bright side than the inspiration photo:

And...with a little bit of liberty, I also followed the sketch:

I am also linking this up with the current CAS-ual Friday's Challenge - Over the Edge:
