Die-Namties Hoppy flowers

Today I decided to use the new release  Hoppy Flowers for my project with this Month's Sketch.  

The DARE is to use something BLUE -  so I incorporated a scrap from Teresa Collin's Urban Market collection for my background flag.  I'm still on a gold kick so I used the Viva Precious Gold to color up Hoppy & the stars.

I made my die cut work around my larger flower by cutting Hoppy off the die, and then I placed him where he would take center stage. 

Here is my finished card
