A Thank you card for Hostesses - stamping 411 sketch challenge

This is a card I make as a thank you to my hostesses of workshops that I have done.
I wanted to make a white hydrangea, just like my neighbour's hydrangea bush which I admire so much.  With a little experimenting I think I succeeded. 
The image was stamped with black Stazon ink and after it was dry I coloured the centers of the flowers with a crumb cake marker.  To make the flower look rounder, I did just a light shading under the flower and under the leaves.
Stamp: Because I Care (Hostess set)
Paper: Always Artichoke, Whisper White, Woodland Walk designer paper
Inks: Always Artichoke, Wild Wasabi marker (for the leaves), Crumb Cake marker
Accessories: Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, Scallop oval punch, dimensionals

All edges of paper, card stock and designer paper, were sponged with Always Artichoke.

This hydrangea is exquisite, and the sponging around the edges really makes it pop!!
