You're The Bestest

Hola ya'll!

I was up early again this morning, thanks to my wonderful internal alarm clock. lol  It was no use attempting to go back to sleep, once I am awake, I'm awake.  Instead, I decided to play along with a couple more challenges.  Here is what I came up with.


I love the outcome, but am trying to fight the urge to add more to it. lol  I embossed the flower in silver, and then watercolored it with my distress inks.  I then cut it out, and popped it up on a white panel, and added a vellum sentiment strip, also embossed in silver.  I'm going to send this to a dear friend, who did something very sweet for my daughter.  I am going to submit this for the following challenges.

House of Cards: Photo Inspiration (I was inspired by the colors and the framed flower that looks watercolored)
Inkspirational Challenge #84: Photo Inspiration (I liked all of the flowers in the photo, so I went with that)
Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge #266: Use Only The Corner
Can You Case It #74: Summer Fun 

That's all for me today.  We're off to buy new stuff for our bathroom remodel, and then grab some lunch with my daughter, before she goes into work.  I hope everyone has a great day!

Stay crafty my friends!
