Play Date Cafe 126 and Sketch N Stash 85

I got up early today and I wanted to make sure that I got some 'me' time to create at least a couple cards.  This is card #2 today.  And this card is more my style.  If you know anything about me, my signature on my cards is that it has to have a flower and some green on it.  Sometimes it has a green flower on it(even though it looks yellow in the pic)...lol.

The Play Date Cafe #126 gave me the color inspiration.  When I see those colors, I think of beach houses, being on vacation in New England in the summer.  I like using gray as a neutral.

Kevin has this nice sketch at Sketch n Stash #85.  There are some very nice examples from the design team.
Sketch Inspiration
I was able to use the new edge punch, pearls and stamp that I won from A La Card Monkey.  The flowers are by Prisma with a brad center, the vellum circle was cut with Spellbinders die.  As for depleting my stash, I was able to use the remnants of several patterned papers.
