simply blessed…

Though I don’t have the exact colors I chose to match sangria, mulberry and New England ivy.
In my stash I have a bunch of water color pieces that I colored with Distress inks.
These I die cut with dies from Honey Bee Stamps “Lovely Layers : Wildflowers” as well as black card stock for the stamen.
On a light mauve card stock base card I applied a piece of white linen card stock die cut with a die from My Favorite Things Die-namics “Blueprints #33” backed with black card stock.
I stamped the sentiment from Hampton Art Stamps using VersaFine onyx black ink.
To finish I glued the flower together and then on the card front.
