Less is More challenge week 8 - sketch

A sketch this time, it makes it easier for me, who is not that good at putting things together.  I always start with my digi stamps and papers I have downloaded, as you all know I am not a stamper, so this is my way of doing my cards.

For some reason orange and black came to mind, and looking through I found this gorgeous digi paper from Summer Driggs.  After a lot of adding taking away and trying this and that, I ended up with this, I needed a thank you card and thought this quote went with the floral theme.  You may be able to see the author just in the background of the flowers underneath the quote. The white is bordered with a digi ribbon from the same set, into which I put the quote, I have cut the main flower and decoupaged it or 3D'd it whichever you prefer to say, then Stickled the background flowers and added 3D gloss accent to the black centres of the flowers.
