The Card Concept Challenge # 55


Welcome to The Card Concept!





Hi!!! Hope everyone is doing well!!!!
I am still on a high from my son's graduation this past weekend! He graduated with his Master's in Fine Arts from UNC-Chapel Hill!  ! He is my sunshine!!!! 

Now onto my card!




I was inspired by the yellows when I created this card.
I pulled out another of my favorite Stampin Up stamps-Happy WatercolorsI started by stamping the flowers four times on Tim Holtz watercolor paper with Potting Soil Archival ink. I then water colored the blooms with Distress Markers. Next, I fussy cut the flowers.  I stamped the flower image onto scripted background paper and paper pieced the watercolored flowers on top.  I added some black Flower Soft to the centers of the flowers.The flowers have great dimension IRL! That fun sentiment is from Mama Elephant's -Labeled Messages.

I hope you have been inspired to play with us at 
We love seeing your wonderful creations!!

What a gorgeous card. I love the background stamping and the beautiful splash of colour in the middle. I also like the modern birthday greeting. A great clash of styles. :)
