Lovely flowers

This card using just a monochrome pallet (brown/cream) and some simple floral arrangements.  I started with a cream square card blank, added a layer of dark brown, then another layer of cream on the top.  On this I stamped some flowers in the corner using Hot Off The Press Botanicals in Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip ink.  I added my sentiment from Paper Makeup Stamps in the bottom left corner.  The hand-made flowers were made by punching out flowers in cream and brown card using various punches (Woodware Flower, EK Success Retro Flower and Paper Shapers Daisy).  The cream flowers were then overstamped using Creative Expression French Script in SU River Rock and Chocolate Chip was sponged around the edges.  I shaped the flowers with a large embossing tool, stuck them together and finished them off with some little brown buttons.
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
