Two challenges in one!

I stumbled upon the Create with Connie and Mary blog early in my blogging. I saved the page on my phone and check in on their challenges. This is my first time trying one. This week, they had an "inspiration challenge." This beautiful cake...

In addition to that, Stamping 411, my first blog challenge spot, has a sweet sketch challenge, too. So I used the inspiration challenge and started creating. Somewhere in the process, I decided to get the stamping 411 challenge in there, too. It wasn't what I was originally thinking of doing, but I wanted to get at least one submission into them...

This card with one daisy came first... cake inspired for sure! I used Brocade Blue (retired, I know) and Daffodil Delight with whisper white flowers.
Then using the same colors, I added in the three flowers,
popped up, of course, and a sentiment in order to
meet the requirements of the Stamping 411 challenge...

I used the sentiment from the hope happens set... I am sending it to a family friend who has just been diagnosed with breast cancer. If you are a prayer, I'd appreciate prayers for Florence.
Thanks for looking!
