Stamplorations Two-fer

I only needed two tries to make this card work - I wanted to combine the current theme, sketch, and CAS challenges at STAMPlorations, and I did it!

Supplies: STAMPlorations birthday sentiment; PTI 'dots' grid'; unknown floral stamps; Tim Holtz bubbles stencil; Twisted Citron & Mustard Seed distress ink; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Copics & Sharpies

I coloured the big blooms in shades of red to go with the twist for the CAS challenge, and as a single-layer card I think this qualifies as CAS - or at least it does for me, lol. 
There are three big flowers, 3 buds, and 3 grids, to go with the theme challenge of triplets, and I used the sketch as well. 
I masked the large flowers, coloured them, and masked them again to add the stenciling and then some yellow sponging to highlight. 

A brief health update - physio last week went horribly wrong, and a therapeutic technique that had been helping to relieve the pain ended up causing serious horrible pain. It's been a discouraging few days being back to where I started with this injury, but nerves are funny things. I know it won't take as long to see improvement this time around, but it's definitely frustrating being unable to do the things I enjoy (or even the things I need to house looks like a tornado hit!)
