Hello and thanks for visiting!
Today's card is inspired by the TGIF Challenges Inspiration Challenge #378 - 'Just A Few Of My Favourite Things' Fun eh! Well it's no secret watercolouring is a favourite of mine. I also really love Clean & Simple Cards with a bit o' bling! So I chose the Colour Challenge #479 from CAS Colours & Sketches for my color palette. While I wasn't able to participate in the challenge at the time please use the hyperlink to visit their blog.
Please click on either my card or #tgifc378 to visit the challenge, enjoy the inspiration :)

Assembly & Trix:
* Stamp and emboss the images from the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set, #159238 with White Embossing Powder on Velum Cardstock, #101856, then die cut with the Blossoming Happiness Dies, #158823.
* Watercolour the images with So saffron, Blushing Bride & Soft Sea Foam. ***Trix, with the ink pad closed, squish the lid to add a colour to the lid, when it's open pick up the colour from the lid & add water to dilute the colour as needed using the Water Painters, #151298.
* The watercolour will stop at the raised emboss edge, allow to dry and add more colour as needed or blend colours as you wish.
* Adhere the flowers to a 4 x 5 1/4 Basic White cardstock layer. ***Trix, the velum will naturally curl when watercoloured, adhere the flowers with glue dots in the centre only, leaving the edges to curl and add dimension to the card.
* Adhere the card layer to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Thick Basic White card base. Stamp the sentiment with Soft Sea Foam, add a Bakers Twine bow behind the sentiment and adhere to the sentiment to the card ***Trix, double stack dimensionals on the edge that adheres to the card base only, allow the sentiment layer to simply lie over the flowers.
