Field Flowers: Sheila's Workshop

I have been wanting to make a card with Field Flowers for some time, but for one reason or another, haven't used it until I was preparing for my friend Sheila's workshop.  This is the card I came up with, inspired by many great samples I have seen on the internet ( I was especially inspired by Windy Fischer's Field Flower card on her blog
