Every Moment Thank You - Create with Connie & Mary Sketch Challenge 155

I bought a new perennial for my flower bed - Gaillardia grandifglora aka blanket flower.  The flower in this image was watercolored to look like this plant.  I used the sketch challenge with Create with Connie & Mary 155 here
to make this card.


Stamps: Every Moment, Teeny tiny wishes
Inks: Black Stazon, watercolor crayons (Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Bravo Burgundy, Early Espresso, Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke) Rose Red
Papers: Very Vanilla, Rose Red, Jolly Holiday designer paper, Old Olive
Accessories: Top Note die, Circles die #2, Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch (Image 1) Small oval punch, 1 1/4" Old Olive striped grosgrain ribbon cut in half and frayed., rhinestones, Map pack and paper piercer, dimensionals

I used masking to stamp the 2 images of the flowers.

I really love this one. Love blanket flowers also, good luck having it come back next year. You live in the cool north so it might like your climate better. You are always an inspiration for me.
