The Heart Desires Challenge #2

I had another of these sweet little Botanical Blocks already embossed ... why not in tropical colors?  Like these for The Heart Desires challenge #2:


I've matched the colors the best I could with Distress Inks, and PTI Enchanted Evening.  I see my card as a mash-up between the inspiration photo and the sketch - maybe?  =]
 
 
Hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by ... it still is the highlight of my day!

Thanks!
