So Saffron, spots and, er... sprigs?

I love the simple colour scheme on this card. The Designer Series Paper is, again, Tea Party, which is very versatile as it includes some fairly wild florals as well as more muted patterns like these So Saffron dots.

I don’t know how to refer to this image. Is it a sprig? Some sort of blossom? All suggestions welcomed. Anyway, I stamped it all over the background in Versamark®. For the main image, I coloured all over the rubber of the solid version with a So Saffron watercolour  crayon, then misted it lightly with water before stamping. Once it had dried, I stamped the outline version on top in Always Artichoke.
