I was inspired by Photo #1 ...A beautiful bouquet of flowers:
This is my take on the challenge:

I chose to lighten the flowers from the deep burgundy to Cobble Red, and a little more of a yellow.

Here is a close up of the foliage:

ODBD Stamps Used: Flourished Verses, 
Paper: Cherry Cobble, White, Garden Green, Moss, 
Ink: Cherry Cobble, Daffodil,
Accessories: Satin Ribbon, Lace, MS Leaf  & Hydrangea Punches,  Spellbinder Leaf Die, Under neath all the foliage, used as a base to start with) SU leaf Die, Dimensionals, Liquid Glue, Bow Easy. and Liquid Pearls. 

I started my Floral Spray, with the Spellbinder Leaf Die, and build up from there (although its almost buried, it added the depth) adding Leaf Branches, and SU leaf Die, then some blooms etc. 

Punched out some buds with the 1/8th  hole punch, and pushed them down on some foam with the end of a crochet hook, 
Added Liquid pearls to the centers.
