The Sugar Bowl Challenge 33

Challenge 33 is a sketch by Gayle with the stipulation to include flowers. Of my two Sugar Nellie images Little Artist was the more suited to the sketch, but I had to think how to incorporate the flowers without them looking like an afterthought or making the card too feminine. The original stamped image has the little boy placing handprints onto the easel - these I replaced with flower gems to make it look as if he is painting them. I replaced the sentiment with the floral spray & the whole sketch was rotated 90 degrees anticlockwise.
