Trying to get back in the saddle... again

Good Evening!

I'm back with my first card since our beloved Truman passed and while I found it a little difficult to get my creative mojo back, I'm happy with how this one turned out, especially since it wasn't the easiest of challenges.

I'm entering this card into 2 challenges. The first is Play Date Cafe and the 2nd is Hero Arts. The theme for Play Date Cafe is to create a card using "Color Splash". In this case, they wanted black, white and green. For Hero Arts, the August challenge is "Keeping In Touch" or "Back To School". I think this works well for "Keeping In Touch".

The black/gray flower is a digi freebie that I colored with a black Prismacolor colored pencil and then added 2, green flowers, a button and a white pearl. The background is the HA stamp, Raindrop Background. The sentiment is from the HA Fanciful Swirl Alphabet set and the dragonfly is from the HA Winged Friends digi set. The flourish is from a Tim Holtz Stamper's Anonymous set and the green pearls started out white and then I colored the with a Copic marker.
