Stampin' Up! Lots of Happy Card Kit

My card for today was colored and stamped while we were staying with our friend, Patti. I never did anything with the flowered panel but today I saw challenges at: 

I used the card base from the card kit which is a hexagon shape. I used the alcohol blends to color the flowers and leaves: Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive. The purple sentiment was from Hampton Arts and the stamp was from Liz' stash. The bow is Cherry Cobbler and will be available 9/5/18. It's the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine.

This will be my next-to-last card made in NYS as we fly back to Tampa early Sunday morning. It's been a wonderful trip and I have more pics to share with you (actually it's a record for myself!).
