SSC61 & SS104 - Thank You

Hiya!  Today's card is one I started coloring on Sunday......and finally got to put together on Tuesday!  I followed a new challenge for me: Sketchbook Saturday Challenge#61 and Sentimental Sunday's 104 - Pocket Full of Posies flower challenge:


I started out heat embossing There She Goes buttercup images on watercolor paper and coloring with Distress inks.  I added a few PTI leaves and a Hero Arts sentiment.  I 'think' I'm going to go back and add some border dots.....the black is a bit too stark, but I'm still happy with the result.

Here's Chupa's sketch:

Have a wonderful day :)

Thanks for your visit!

Beautiful! I think the ruffled ribbon softens the black beautifully.
