Inspirational Card Sketches DT Call

There is a new challenge blog starting up called Inspirational Card Sketches and they are looking for a DT at the moment so I thought I'd give it a go. The blog says:
I'm starting up Inspirational Card Sketches in order to share my inspiration with you.
First and farmost there will be no compensation at this time.I'm looking for 6 designers who love creating cards.
Your term will be 4 months. Term is from Feb-May 2009
If you would love or like to be on a Card Sketch Design Team this call is for you.
Every Tuesday I will send you a card sketch one week in advance for you to work on. You however as a DT member will have to get your creations to me no later then Monday at 12:00pm (noon) Central Standard Time.
You will also get to embellish your cards however you want. My sketches are for your inspiration only. And to help others get ideas on how to use these sketches. There is a sketch to follow for the DT call and I rotated it and replaced the circle with a circle of flowers. I used a Sarah Kay stamped image and coloured it with distress inks.
A close up of the detail shows I have used prima flowers to embellish with pearl brads and a spacer for the centre. I also added a ribbon and a heart shaped jewel.
Card/Paper: Cream, blue and silver metallic card, DCWV pocket full of posies paper
Stamp: Sarah kay stamped image
Colouring: Ranger distress inks - faded jeans, tattered rose, weathered wood, spiced marmalade, fired brick and walnut stain. Green and yellow whispers pens.
