Friendship Like Coffee Card - The Sweet Stop

I am liking the Sweet Stop Challenge site more and more! Their sketches are just detailed enough to be a challenge but to leave room for interpretation. 
This card was created using Flirty - one of my favourite paper packs. I incorporated some additional cardstock outside the Flirty colours this time to create a rainbow of pinks - some Hollyhock and Cotton Candy. My flower was partially hand created by spritzing the bottom piece with a mix of reinker and water and the middle piece was a flower from a really old collection that CTMH used to sell ages ago but it matched perfectly. 

Some of you have emailed me and asked why I don't show the insides of my cards and there is a reason for that. I never complete the insides of my cards until I know who the recipient will be. At that time, I go back and create the inside of the card to reflect who it is going to receive it and I add the sentiment and the additional details at that time. I hope that answers your questions. 

The sketch is shown below the card.
