Get Well Soon - Inkspiration Sketch Challenge 65

Yesterday the weather was so beautiful - in fact it was a perfect spring day - so I decided to go out and do some yard chores.  The first thing I did was rake the lawn by the curb.  The snow plow had left a lot of debris on the grass - sand, fine stones, broken branches - and other people had thrown papers, plastic bags, etc. It took a while because after raking everything had to be picked up.  That sand was heavy!  Now the lawn on the curb looks better.  Then I raked the remnants of leaves from the fall in the back yard and again cleaned up debris.  The wind blows everything into my back yard.
Today my body is sore, but it's threatening rain and possibly thunder showers so it's a good day to stay indoors. Two sisters are coming over today to put together a poster of pictures for another sister who is close to death.  It may be an emotional day!

My card today was inspired by a flower tag I happened to see in my perennial garden and uses the sketch challenge with Inkspirations here 
Here is the Sketch:

First I used the 3 1/2" Circle die from Sizzix to cut a Whisper White Circle.
I stamped one of the flowers and make a mask for it before stamping the other 2 on this circle.
The petals were first colored with So Saffron, then highlighted with Daffodil Delight, and shaded with More Mustard.
So Saffron, Soft Suede and Chocolate chip were colors I blended for the centers.  Of course I added some bling in the form of Dazzling Diamonds.
The stems were colored first with Pear Pizzazz and shaded with Always Artichoke.
The circle was sponged liberally with Chocolate Chip ink.
More Mustard card stock forms the base of the card, followed by a Whisper White layer.  Again this layer was sponged with Chocolate Chip ink.  The designer paper  which was also sponged, is  Sweet Stitches.
Here's my card:
