Floral Birthday

Hello!  It is Thursday, and while many parts of this week have been super long (lots of snow days), other parts have seem to flown past.  I was fortunate enough to sneak in a little play time in between project deadlines and I'm playing with the Winnie & Walter Birthday Bash Gold + Watercolor Challenge and with the Pretty Pink Posh Valentine Challenge.

For my card I was inspired by Gayatri's beautiful floral arrangement and I knew my Winnie & Walter's In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet would be perfect for the challenge!

To create my card I used a "Faux Water Color" Technique by coloring my images with Distress Markers then spritzing them with water before stamping them onto my paper.  I then heat embossed my sentiment with gold embossing powder from The Big, the Bold, and the Happy Stamp Set.  I then diecut the panel with the Essential's: Audrey's Cutaways.  I then set it all a sparkle with some Pretty Pink Posh Sequins in Sparkling Clear 6 mm and 8 mm, as well as some Metallic Gold 4mm.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
