*SweetStamps #143: Thank You

Good morning sweeties!!
Today, is another start of challenge week at SweetStamps.
This weeks theme is: 
Thank You
Oh how I LOVE to color!!  
I love my Copic markers but, I also love my watercolor markers too!!
For my card today, I stamped up Gerbera Daisy and colored using distress ink markers!!
I needed to make a card for our Auntie, who sent the boys an awesome book a couple of weeks ago. 
I have never sent her a card before, so I know she will love this card!!
I stamped  and cut out an extra daisy to add a little bit of interest and dimension to that card. 
The sentiment has been stamped with Memento black ink, on parchment paper. 

So, I hope you have enjoyed my project today and will find inspiration to join us this week. 
Don't forget we also have our monthly challenge going on. 
You can get all the details HERE

  16. Wonderful color integration! Your background paper is bold, but the simplicity of your focal image and sentiment, and the beautiful way you pulled the colors from the paper into your flowers, prevents it from overpowering the entire design! That is a wonderful design technique and you used it perfectly! Beautiful, beautiful project that is perfectly colored, composed and executed!
    Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful creation with us here at 613 Avenue Create!
