Timeless Tuesday Challenge!

It its time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday (FTTC15)! This week Dee Jackson is hosting the challenge. It is Dee's Birthday today!!! WooHoo!!! Happy Birthday, Dee!!! As many of you know Dee is having some health issues. We are continuing to keep her in our prayers and we miss her very much!!!! Dee is challenging us to create Birthday cards!!!! We are celebrating life, health, and happiness!!!! So, whether your Birthday card is for a newborn or someone celebrating over 100 years, we would love to see what you create!!!

I am using the Poppy Patch and Many Sentiments sets. I stamped all of my images on European Watercolor paper using Palette Noir ink. I watercolored the entire background using so saffron, an aquapainter and reinker. I then water colored all the flowers and cut them out and popped them up for added dimension. I shrinky dinked the sentiment tag. I finished with some black gingham and button detailing. I love how this turned out. I did use a Fiskars border punch for some detailing along with some pearl domes to finish my look.
