Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop

I'm sneaking in at the last minute today to share a card 
that I made for today's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.
 

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


Isn't it pretty? 
It's so perfect for spring and for Easter.
I loved the pretty flowers on the background of the grey wall.
Here's my card:


I stamped the main lined image from Fresh Bouquet in versamark and heat embossed it 
in white on bristol board.
I coloured them in using my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours.
I diecut them using its coordinating die and adhered it to a grey cardstock panel.



I stamped my sentiment (from Stamp Market) onto my background in versamark,
which I heat embossed in white.

Thanks for looking!

So soft and pretty, Leigh. On my phone your card looks like kraft not gray. Fresh Bouquet is great stamp set to use for this challenge.

So light and delicate, Leigh! I love it! So I’m guessing the Kuretake watercolors work well on Bristol?! I’ll have to try this. Thanks for sharing.
