Kitchen Sink Stamps Crew Challenge 25-1

Another month, another Kitchen Sink Stamp Crew Challenge. This month's challenge is a sketch. I used my latest KSS set, Hibiscus to create this card. The paper is all from Club Scrap. I love the background piece both because of its color and its texture. The oval is cut with my Spellbinder nestibilities oval die.
This is the sketch for the challenge. I tried to follow it pretty closely.

This card also meets the requirements of the RangerInk Challenge. That theme is Blossom. We are to use a blossom or blossoms and Ranger products. My usual ink of preference when using KSS multi-step images is Adirondacks, so these challenges were closely related. The additional Ranger product I used was Stickles in the small flower centers.

Color recipes: all inks are Adirondack
Hibiscus -- 1 mountain rose, 2 watermelon, 3 cranberry, 4 sunset orange, 5 raisin
Leaf -- 1 willow, 2 lettuce, 3 meadow
Stickles -- golden rod
