MFT sketch challenge #238

Another fantastic sketch is up on the Card Challenges blog this week - MFT sketch #238

oohh.... I like this one!!!
I played with my new MFT watercolor flowers stamps, and made, well, watercolor flowers!! 
I mixed peach and pink inks on the stamp and then spritzed them with water before stamping to make these delicious flowers - a little something I learned from my dear friend and MFT designer Kimberly Crawford, which you can learn about HERE on her awesome video. I don't own the the flower dies (yet!), so I fussy cut them out and adhered them to the card. In lieu of the rectangular panel in the sketch, I used my MFT stitched fishtail flag dies to create a layered panel to run across the card. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps Big Scripty Greetings set.
I embossed the white background panel with a large dot embossing folder, and also used a large stitched rectangle die to cut it out. I splashed a few sequins on the card to give it a little sparkle ;)
The most exciting part about this card however, is that I sent it to someone who I think is absolutely AWESOME - I can't wait until she gets it!! :)

 *ETA - I'm adding this card to the Simon Says Stamp 'Anything Goes Challenge', just 'cause I love this card so much, I want to share it everywhere!! ;)

thanks for stopping by!!
