Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges #336 - Flowers

Hello everyone! Welcome to the weekend and another
fun theme challenge at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE!
Our hostess this week is Krafty Girl Alexis 
and her challenge theme for us is...FLOWERS!
The criteria are pretty easy for this one  - as long as we can see flowers 
somewhere on your creation you are qualified to link up your entry
(you can have flowers on the paper, on ribbon, in or on the image, 
or added flowers as an embellishment).  Easy peasy right?!

I used two beautiful summery stamps on my card today

I began by masking the flowers and heat embossing the 
stamped images on a panel of watercolor paper and
then directly dabbing my mini distress ink pads 
on the stamped/embossed images (using the corners of
the pads and dotting within the image with large and small
dabs - trying not to completely fill in the image).  
Then I spritzed the panel with water to let the colors
blend a little but the watercolor paper I used is very
heavily textured and the colors didn't spread out as much
as I anticipated that they would so I used a brush
and added more water to blend out the inks some more.
As a last touch I added some pretty sequins. 
Do you supposed I get bonus points for having the 
word "Flowers" on my card? :o)  
I'm really happy with how it turned out!  Hope you like it too! 

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create - Challenge #180 "Anything Goes w/twist
of Create Your Own Challenge" 
 I chose A2 card type , with Thinking of You/Encouragement
for the event and watercolor and sequins for the trends. 
I used flowers, image (butterflies) and Summer theme
(I think it could also qualify for Sentiment, Flowers, Leaves)

Stamping Sensations - June Challenge "Feature a Creature"
Cute Card Thursday Challenge #430 - Little Bugs/Butterflies
