Card Concept Design Challenge

Hello my stampy friends! If you haven't heard...
The Card Concept challenge
 is having a design team call looking for a few new designers in several of their style categories and I decided to give it a try!  Using Challenge #30 as my inspiration, I created a card in what I think is either Clean and Layered or maybe a little Mixed Media.


The first thing that inspired me about this beautiful photo was the flowers! 
And the second thing was the design on the white vase!
I immediately thought of a Crackled Texture (Wendy Vecchi) embossed background with my Doily(Tim Holtz) stencil, and my new Blossom (Precious Remembrance) stamp set.

So here is my card:



Hope my card will be considered!
Wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by!
