MMSC71 - Man with Flowers & Cat

Hi everyone!  We had a great time in Western Maryland and were even able to squeeze in a tour of the historic Falllingwater home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in Mill Run, Pennsylvania.  It's always fun to get away, and good to be home too where I have internet access and can craft.
My card today uses the "priscillastyles" Man with Flowers and Cat image.  I colored my image with Copics and highlighted the bouquet of flowers with a Sakura clear star pen.  I used Sizzix dies (flower, daisies and flourishes #11)  to create my big flower.  Embellishments also include some yummy lace, ribbon, a MS circular tag and bling.  My starting point was the sketch, Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #71.  This card qualifies for the following challenges:
Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #71 (MMSC71) - sketch
Gingerloft Challenge -- First Challenge -- Anything Goes
Stampin' for the Weekend -- Challenge #46 -- Shabby or Vintage
Southern Girls Challenge -- First Challenge -- Anything Goes
The Shabby Tea Room -- Week 27 -- Fresh Living -  Nature and/or the color green (I used flowers & the color green.)
Thanks so much for visiting.  I can't wait to check out what everyone has been up to while we were away.  Have a fun week!
Supplies:  Stamps - "priscillastyles" Man with Flowers and Cat; Paper - Tim Holtz DSP, SU! pink pirouette, GP white, generic white base; Ink - Copic Markers for coloring, Sakura clear star pen; Accessories - Spellbinder die, Sizzix dies, lace from Walmart, PTI ribbon, MS circle tag, MM brad.
