FTL93 - Handmade "Primas"

This card is based on the sketch by Clean and Simple Stamping's FTL93. It is probably too busy to be "clean and simple" since there is no white space but it is simple so I'm at least 1/2 way there! Do you like those flowers?! Here is a frugal way to make them to match any cardstock you want!!
First off - when is the last time you saw so many luscious brown brads in one place?!! I think I may have sighed out loud over all this lovely brown goodness so I had to have it. Underneath, you will see a sprig of cheap-o silk flowers - the kind you can pick up for about $1. Yank a couple blossoms off (I colored the top bloom with a pink Copic marker but it is hard to tell in the pic) and add a brad in the middle -
and you end up with your own homemade Prima flowers for WAY less money. Which actually leaves me money to increase my stash of brown accessories - a girl can't have too much brown, right? Patterned paper is by My Mind's Eye, sentiment is by A Muse.
