Rainbow Bouquet

What a pretty coincidence! 
The two challenge posts that are due from me today (Cupcake Inspirations and Pile It On) go together so beautifully. So, I am combining this post to use this one card for both challenges. :) 
I do love to pile it on. Ha!! 

It's time for another challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations!! 
I hope you'll come over and join us.

Pile It On has another challenge for you, so come over and join us.

This week, we are sponsored by Paper Sweeties.

Thank you so much for sponsoring this challenge, Paper Sweeties!

This week would like you to USE A BOW.

I used a WPlus9 Design Studio stamp set called Fresh Cut Florals. I was planning on using the companion die set but the card just didn't go that way. I am looking forward to playing with this one a bit more in the near future. 

I used Memento Dew Drops in a rainbow (literally) of colors. I really like the way the ink looks watercolored. Didn't know I was going for that but I love it. :) I also used Stampin' Up's Whisper White Craft ink for the inside of some of the flowers. 

The card stock is Bazzil's Marshmallow and Neenah's Desert Storm. The ribbon is from my stash. Just a plain black grosgrain that looks prefect with these fresh cut flowers.

I made this card for my cousin's, Sammie, birthday this Monday. Happy birthday, sweet girl! I love you. 

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
