Grow Love for CAS(E) this Sketch.....

Hello everyone: I know I'm cutting it way to close to post my entry for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge for this past week, no excuses so, without any more delays, here is my card.
This is an old but much loved image from a long gone stamp company named Flourishes, the set is called "From the Garden".
I colored it with SU markers in Night of Navy, Cajun Craze, River Rock, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip. The DSP is from Lilly of the Valley. I paper snipped the image, I didn't want to stamp it in a big piece of water color paper because it's not really white, it's Off White so I just paper snipped the image after I colored it. The sentiment is from the same set.
Here is a close up.
And here is the sketch that inspired this card.I hope you like it. Please leave me your comments or questions, I will answer these right away.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today, it's always such a joy for me to read your thoughts.
Till next time,
Hugs from Maria.
