Hello everyone: It's the half way on THE FLOWER CHALLENGE "One Layer Card" challenge so here I am with another card to inspire you to come and play along.

This image is from a very old and retired Flourishes set called "Sweet Violets". I stamped it on a folded watercolor card base with Versafine black ink, clear heat embossed it and colored it with Sakura Koy watercolors.  I wanted to frame the image with something so I grabbed a SU embossing folder called "Filigree", this kind of ground my little flowers.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The border is done with a SU set called "Delicate Details", the sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called SAGE ADVICE.

I hope you join my teammates and I at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE gallery and also check out the fabulous and beautiful inspiration cards from the rest of the Design Team, we can't wait to see what you create.
Please include our logo on your post when you upload your card, make sure the main image is a flower, you can participate in 6 challenges including ours.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

Hugs from Maria.
