Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop

I have a card to share for today's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.

Our challenge was to use this beautiful photo as inspiration:


Isn't it pretty?
I was inspired by the colours and pattern and chose to use my Floral Bouquet stamp set


Here's my card:


I stamped my Fresh Bouquet outline stamp all over my piece of watercolour paper
in versamark and heat embossed it in clear.
Then, I colour it in using my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers and a water brush.


I stamped my sentiment (from PTI's Think Big Sentiments) 
on a strip of cardstock and heat embossed it in white.
I also added a scalloped frame from the Shakers and Sprinkles kit,
which I diecut from another piece of watercolour paper.

Thanks for looking!
