Embossed Flowers

Happy Tuesday everyone, and thank you for visiting!

I didn't plan on sharing this card today, but blogger messed up when I was going to place the post in draft mode, and it got published. Here I thought I was working ahead for a post in June...and it would have been so perfect for that post too :-(

Well, since it's still some time until June, I just decided to share the card today instead, since many of you will have seen it now in your blog feed...

I used the stamp set " Sunny Wishes" to make my card. The image  has been heat embossed using versamark ink and white embossing powder. Watercoloring was done with the Zig Clean Color brush pens on Bristol Vellum card stock. 
I wanted to bring some of the color to the bottom portion of the card, so I embellished with a yellow butterfly which I adhered onto an orange half circle. Sentiment was stamped in espresso ink to match the brown card stock I used as a mat. (It looks kind of black or dark gray in the photo,  but is actually early espresso by SU.)

Below is a closeup! 
This beautiful floral stamp set is listed brand new in my Etsy shop, and I am getting ready to list the card as well, if you are interested.
