Papertrey Ink December Blog Hop

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

 This month's challenge was to use these photo as inspiration:


Isn't it pretty?
I was inspired to play with my new Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolours
that I got for Christmas yesterday to make my card.


I stamped the outline leaf and flowers from Floral Sketches and heat embossed them in white.
Then, I stamped the wreath from Twig Wreath overtop in versamark and added 
white embossing powder, brushing off the powder over the flowers before heat embossing it.
I coloured everything in with my new watercolours (which I love!)
and added my sentiment (from KIS: Belated Birthday) which
I adhered with dimensional adhesive.

Thanks for looking!
