Inspired by all the little things #12

Today, I have a card to share for 
 

Isn't it gorgeous?
I decided to use my Stampin' Up! blossoms stamp to make my card.


On watercolour paper, I stamped the image  & sentiment (from PTI's Choose Joy) 
in versamark and heat embossed it in white.
Then, I used my Zig markers, water and a paintbrush to colour them in.


As a finishing touch, I impressed some soft stone cardstock with a PTI woodgrain
impression plate and added it along the side of my card.

Visit Inspired By All the Little Things to see the rest of the DT's takes
on the inspiration photo and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Thursday, April 28th to link up your card.

Thanks for looking!

Oh how LOVELY!!! The watercoloring around the flowers is so pretty. I also like that you got the color of the flowers on your card to match the inspiration piece. That is always so hard for me to do!!

I'm not sure which I like more...that beautiful branch with all its blossoms, or that sentiment. Both are wonderful! Your watercoloring is impeccable, and the gray background really makes those blooms pop. This is just beautiful. Love it. Bev

Another stunner with ZIG markers Leigh! You should do this on a bigger piece and hang it in your house. Like a gallery piece.
