Thank you card

I'm just scraping in at the last minute for A gem of a challenge 36 where this sketch was given:


My card is made with more of those lovely PM Persimmon collection 'reminiscent of a bygone era', with a few gems, a sentiment and a Martha Stewart bloom added - why is it that the bloom looks more yellowy irl and peach on this photo? Ah well, it really does match the papers - honestly! Paper edges were distressed with stormy sky DI. Shapes were cut with nesties.
