Hibiscus Hello card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from SugarPea Designs
Here's my take on the challenge.  Those vivid red flowers from the inspiration picture were what caught my eye, so I wanted to be sure to include something similar in my design.  I created a pair of red flowers using hibiscus stamps from a SugarPea Designs stamp set.  The images were cut out with the matching dies, then used them to dress up a wreath made from swirlie die cuts. I layered several of the swirlie die cuts to give my wreath dimension.  I adhered the wreath to a soft blue cardstock panel over a narrow strip of orange cardstock.  The flowers and leaves were arranged along the right side of the wreath. 

For the sentiment, I die cut the word "hello" from the SugarPea Designs Chatterbox Journal Card die set from both red cardstock and craft foam.  After layering the two die cuts, I adhered them to the orange strip.  The finished panel was adhered to a white card base.
