Basic Grey and Sketch Saturday challenges

The Basic Grey challenge this week is stitching (it would be when my machine has 'conked out') - so some of the stitching is hand done, other faux. I used Sketch Saturday's Sketch and
Two Scoops papers and decided to do a 'pretty' card this week. I'm not too good at pretty so I struggled somewhat. I'm not sure what the image is - I received it in a swap, but I watercoloured it, cuttlebugged a few embellishments and finished it off with flowers and brads from stash.
Papers: Basic Grey - Two Scoops
Cuttlebug: Floral borders die
QuicKuts: Flourish die
