Watercolored Fuschias

Hi and welcome!  It's Saturday evening and I've had a busy day encompassing laundry, dog-walking and car-washing.  In between all that, I got in some stamping time and made a card for this week's Muse Challenge, as well as Just Add Ink, who are looking for "W" cards and Seize The Birthday, where I'm joining in the linky party.


I think it's pretty obvious where my inspiration came from :)  I stuck with the same layout as Tracey as well as the flower and birthday theme.  I stamped the fuschia image onto some Canson XL watercolor paper and colored with my Zig markers before die-cutting it.  The sentiment comes from Say it in Style and I just love the font on this stamp!


Thanks for visiting.
