Painted flower

I am always happy when ideas come together for combining several challenges.  I hope some of you will agree.
Recipe: 1) painted flower - I know I have a box of paints but I put them away for summer storage (!) and I cannot discover the location.  My only choice was the Copper acrylic paint - it worked here, I think.  I also used watered down paint for the shading.   2) lattice - I used a Lattice punch by Martha Stewart;  3) circle bg - Spellbinders eyelet circle;   4) inked embossing - I used the same copper paint - it did get a bit more blotchy than I liked but I wanted to match the image:
Neglected stamp I like - well, that could be any of a large number, but I selected this SU Garden Collage - one I have had for some time, like a lot, but use sparingly - I make a lot of cards, but also have a lot of stamps - there just is not time to use them all!
Sketch (stretched to an A2 size):
Any, with sentiment:  
Chocolate (the lattice is chocolate in color, and the bg and ribbon are cocoa - I used the Cuttlebug for the embossed bg, the HB folder, and the die cuts):
Other supplies:  Twinkling H20 green, copper; ribbon, LifeStyle Crafts ef; pop dots for cut and raised butterfly.
