Thank You Floral Wreath

Hello!  Today you will find a Thank you card I've created here and on the Mint Owl Studio Blog!

This guy is a touch shorter than the average A2 sized card, no real rhyme or reason other than I wanted to make a smaller one hehehe!  I started by stamping my floral wreath from the Bundles of Joy stamp set with Versafine ink.  I then watercolored the floral images with my Gansai Tambi watercolors.  Next I went over the background with water and dropped in pinks and purples.  Once it was all dry I die cut the edge of the cardstock.  I then stamped my sentiment from the new Scripty Sentiments over the middle... now, here's the tricky part... when I first stamped the sentiment it became muddled and lost with the wreath, and I had a touch of a freak out moment as I didn't want to waste this beautiful start to my card.  So... here is where my white gel pen came to the rescue!  I outlined the edge of my sentiment with a white gel pen and it really made it pop, and bring the focus in.  Finally, I added some sequins from the Hearts and Kisses Sequin Mix. ( I also ran a strip of glitter washi tape along the top, because of course I needed more bling hehehe! )

I am also linking this little guy up to the Simon Says Stamp Wed. Anything Goes Challenge and their Work It Wed. Flower Challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
