Another first using the Hero Arts Stamp & Framelit set

My first card, using this Hero Arts - Sizzix  Stamp & Die cut set.
Now in love with the set.. 
(Will write more eod)
The CAS Colors and Sketches #31 had the perfect inspiration sketch.
ABNH asking for a card using my favorite Hero Arts stamp :-)
Diecut divas welcoming summer with flowers..
Didnt need any more reason to play with this beauty.. 
Kept it one layer since HA's current challenge is one layer cards.

The sketch with flowers, stuck in my head, and the different sizes of the flowers was the key to this skletch.
Initially planned to keep it plain stamped, but then, felt that it wasn't doing justice to both the sketch and beauty of the flowers and so die cut a couple of more stamped flowers and gave some dimension and more interest.
