I am showing a closer up semi side view to show the second layer of flower 
which makes it look a bit more 3-D. 
Below is the sketch, as you can tell, I turned it 90 degrees.  I felt like this better suited the stamp that I had planned to use.  A sketch is just a starting point, you may turn it on it's side, upside down or backward, which ever way suits your need, and think of placement rather than shapes...that top rectangle could be an oval or a heart, you get the picture.
The stamps I used today are: ODBD Lilac and Ornate Frame Sentiments
This card is for the Shining the Light Challenge #199 (The sketch above).

For Lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.  The fig tree puts forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grapes give a good smell.  Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away!  Song of Solomon 2:11-13

This is gorgeous Robin!! I just love your coloring of the lilacs, the use of the dp, and the take on the sketch. Lilacs are very dear to me as I remember picking lilacs as a child for my mother on Mother's Day each year as a child.

Oh, Robin, this is stunning! (And I almost used this lilac myself!) But wow, have you done a beautiful job with this sketch! I love your papers and colors, and the die with the thin ribbon is lovely! And popping the flower is gorgeous, along with the beautiful coloring! It's stunning, sweet friend! Hugs!
