Island Blooms

I was shopping this afternoon after reading this morning about the new Hero Arts challenge for the month, Flowers.  In one of the shops I saw a new (to me) pattern by Vera Bradley and loved the colors and design:

Vera Bradley Island Blooms

It's called Island Blooms.  When we got home I started looking for a stamp that would be similar and here is the card I ended up making:

inspired by Vera Bradley

supplies: white card base, turquoise cardstock, Hero Arts CG403 Large Flower Background,  Versafine onyx black ink and clear embossing powder, white and lime colored pencils, CL169 SparkleClear Happy Thoughts, lime ribbon, pearls

Also adding this to the Simon Says Stamp challenge: Anything Goes.
