I must admit this card did not turn out exactly how I imagined it to look but I still kinda like it lol.  I started by white embossing the flower from the Helping Me Grow stamp set on watercolor paper and coloured the background using an aqua painter and re-inkers (Island Indigo and Night of Navy).  I wanted to try and create a bit of a denim look to the background, not really sure if I managed to pull it off or not lol, what do you think.  Now on to colouring the flower, I  wanted to use bright colours to make the flower pop so I went with Pumpkin Pie and Tangerine Tango and coloured the stems using Garden Green ink.  I then white embossed the corners and saying and finished the card off by adding some clear Wink of Stella>
