Wishing you all the best

Playing along with Fusion this week where the challenge is:

While I have no orchid stamps, I did have my latest PTI order which included
Peonies On Parade.

Trying to combine the photo with the sketch, 
first stenciled the middle with Ranger's Mermaid Lagoon & Salty Ocean.
I then stamped ferns from PTI's Birds and Blooms & Twig Wreath.
Tried to emulate the glass with PTI's Dotty Vellum,
colored (on the back) with copics
The Peony was colored with copics and my watercolor pencils, trying
desperately to capture those orchid pinks!
I did move the butterfly image up to the top.
Sentiment from Birds and Blooms (PTI)
Stampendous Fuchsia Crushed Glass Glitter
A bit of Wink of Stella.
The string of aqua sequins was in my 12 Kits package from 
Michelle Leone. Thank you Michelle!
