Watercolored Roses

Hi and welcome!  Today I'm thrilled to be a guest over at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  I love that challenge and play along whenever time permits.  Check out this week's challenge:

Are these not fabulous colors?  For my card, I decided to get out my Zig markers and chose colors as close to the challenge colors as possible.

I white embossed the outline images from Scribble Roses and colored with my Zig markers.  After I'd die-cut all the pieces, I arranged them how I wanted and used some Press n Seal to keep the arrangement in place (love that stuff!).  I die-cut a strip of Fog cardstock with a scalloped edge die and adhered that to a white card base that I'd lightly spritzed with some Gold Color Shine.  I then stuck down my flowers before removing the Press n Seal from them.  The sentiment was die-cut from black card and liberally coated with Wink of Stella.

Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out the wonderful creations by the Cupcake Inspirations DT and have some fun with these colors.
