A HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOUQUET

Hello everyone, 




I wanted to jump in on the birthday celebration over at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Happy Birthday" this week - Simon Says Stamps is celebrating an awesome 8 years!  Congratulations Simon Says Stamps!!!! 

and CAS Watercolor Cards (new to me) Challenge "Pink and Green".


My card uses Altenew "Dahlia Blossoms".  As most of you know, Altenew has so many florals, but this one jumped out of the shop and into my cart the second I saw it.  
I used Tim Holtz watercolor paper, Distress Inks and an aqua brush to color my flowers. After drying them, I embossed the flowers with gold embossing powder.  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you grab some crafting time this weekend!
