ZOOpendous Day- SOUS reveal

Wow!! Those two weeks by like a blink of an eye... But, I always love our reveals over SOUS and this week we have a wonderful sketch by Liz Qualman.. 
I decided to make some of my own embellishments this time and I'm glad I did.. Got to play with my new Mother's Day Bouguet cartridge.. Lovin it!!
anywho!! here is my take on this weeks sketch:

I used K&Co Tim Coffey's Designer Paper.. and the vine I hand made along with the flowers..
The photo is of me and my kids eating lunch at the Helsinki Zoo back when we first moved to Finland..

our sketch this week is:
and for a few close ups:

I followed Sandi's flower tutorial over at S.O.U.S that she had along with her Memory box tutorial.. covered the tips of the flowers with glossy accents and then dipped em in Diamond dust..
