Heliconia - Easter Flower & DCBC sketch challenge 215

Today's card is not only a flower made with the Two Step Bird Punch, but also is a card for the Diva Coffee Design Team sketch challenge #215 here

Again, I partially cased the flower from http://annscreativemoments.com/2010/03/20/easter-flower-with-the-bird-punch-heliconia/  The layout of the card and the colours used are different.

Stamp: Tiny Tage
Papers: Always Artichoke, Whisper White, Designer paper from Paper Pack, Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery
Inks: Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke, Basic Black
Accessories: Two Step Bird Punch, Extra large Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Corner rounder punch (retired), Scallop border punch, Tiny Tags punch, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Stampin Dimensionals

The Flower: Punch 8 wings of the bird.  Sponge the outer end with Melon Mambo ink, and the curved upper end with Certainly Celery.  Place the petals in position as seen in the card.
The stem is a piece of Always Artichoke, as is the leaf.

Sentiment: Hello....Friends....Thanks so much
