Pink floral birthday with Concord and 9th

Hello!  I felt the need to make a floral card today, and the challenges at The Flower Challenge, and at Where Creativity Meets C9 was calling my name!
I stamped and white embossed the Concord & 9th floral image onto some Canson watercolour paper. I then added colour with Zig clean color real brush markers and sprayed with water. I added a bit more colour in some places, before fussy cutting the edges of the image and mounting it onto some Stampin Up Regal Rose cardstock, and then onto a top folding white card base made from Neenah 11lb solar white. I took a scrap of the Regal Rose cardstock and white embossed the sentiment from the Many Mandalas stamp set (also Concord & 9th) and popped that up on some foam tape. A little line of faux stitching lines on the sentiment strip, and a coat of Wink of Stella on the flowers were the finishing touches.

 Thanks for visiting :)
