Flower Stamp and ANY Die(s) Challenge

Hello my friends-
How are you all doing, this fine Tuesday morning?
I hope that things are sort of warming up for you where you are. 

We have a fantastic challenge for you over at Sweets Stamps this week.
This weeks theme is:
FLOWER stamp and ANY Die(s)
I really love the vibrant colors of these Bluebells.  I colored them with my Distress Ink Markers and I kept adding more and more layers of colors after it dried.
I thought I was overdoing it at first, but looking at now...I love it!!
The card was created using TSD Step Card Die.  Ladies...I'm telling you, this is a MOST have for any die collection.  If you love the look of a step and and don't want to deal with the cutting and measuring, well this is the product for you!!  I promise you!!  So the base of the card is Bazzill Kraft and I used some really old but lovely K & Co paper.  The Bluebells image is stamped on watercolor paper and embossed in detail fine embossing powder.  I inked around the image with Antique Linen distress ink and around the edge of the paper with Walnut Stain.
Here is the inside of the card.
I am going to try and finish the inside of all the cards I make.
Another resolution of mine.  I did good last year, but this year I am going to do better!! LOL
