Laura's Sketch22, "Warm Colors", "Favorite Things" and DCM "Cos I'm a Woman"

I have to admit that Laura's sketch had me stumped this week until I rotated it 90 degrees! When I did it finally started coming together... my mojo has been a little sluggish this past week. But, be that as it may...

I've combined Laura's Sketch with the Charisma My Favorite Things challenge (in this case, an Oriental-theme with my favorite stamp, lovely patterned paper and a great big bow!), DCM "Cos I'm a Woman!" and Creative Card Crew's Warm Colors challenge.

Here's are some inside views (left/right):

Supplies used:
Background paper is My Mind's Eye (from a clearance find at Hobby Lobby),
The darker accent paper is "Rustic Text" from The Paper Studio .
Geisha stamp is from Auntie Amy's Embossing Arts, which I bought awhile back from Addicted to Rubber
The Chop stamp is from Penny Black.
Chocolate Chip cardstock
99-cent Robert Stanley ribbon from Hobby Lobby
Hydrangea blossoms from floral stem

The rain has cleared up now so I'm about to go outside and work some more on the patio garden. The scarlet runner beans are starting to climb their twine lattice!

Hugs from Texas,
