oh happy day...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a quick post... time is running out on the current Essentials by Ellen Pinsights challenge and I wanted to get something made as the inspiration photo is full of gorgeous photos that really got my wheels turning!  My struggle to make things continues as I have been having problems with my shoulder which leads to a complete lack of desire to make anything.  I was able to somewhat push past the pain/discomfort and get my card done... YAY!  I'm also going to be adding this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.  I based my card on the photo of the bride holding that gorgeous bouquet of flowers and used the Essentials by Ellen Bold Blooms stamp set and the Bold Blossoms stand alone die set.  I water colored a couple of panels of watercolor paper using rose red ink and dark green ink.  Once dry I die cut the flowers and leaves from each panel.  A bit of washi tape behind the center pieces of the flowers kept those in place as did some placed behind all the leaves used.  Layered up everything on a white die cut panel and the added the sentiment from Bold Blossoms.  Quick and easy! 

Thanks for stopping by today...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  SSS fog; Ranger watercolor paper; Stamps:  Essentials by Ellen; Dies;  Essentials by Ellen, A Jillian Vance Design; Inks:  Stampin Up!  Rose Red and Gumball Green, Memento Tuxedo Black
