Congrats, have a wonderful day!

Good morning folks. 
It's been a busy week in my craftroom, with all these posts and what!
I thought I could have a quiet end to the week as I had made my card for this week's Cardz4Galz inspiration post, WRONG. Yep I'd written the wrong theme on my calendar! Anyway I managed to grab a little time to make something just in time.
This week our theme for you is -


Here is my card for your inspiration.

I used Memento Rich Cocoa to stamp my sketchy blooms from Altenew's Painted Flowers, as well as the stamped part of the greeting on a die cut white card panel. Painted Flowers is a three part stamp set, background, shadow and outline, so I did the outline stamping first as I wanted the layout down first before I added the colour. I then stamped the solid flower in Angel Pink and the shadow in 2nd generation Rose Bud. For the little buds I stamped some Rose Bud onto a block and used a water brush to add a bit of colour. I hope you'll forgive me for a little bit of green foliage, I suppose I could have stayed with the brown shades but honestly I forgot, I did leave the small leaves uncoloured though!
I die cut a CONGRATS using an ancient Cuttlebug plate and a piece of v pale pink, almost white glitter card. A few sequins completed my card and the finished panel was glued flat onto a white base card.
OK, that's it from me. Please check out the rest of the team for more pink and brown inspiration.
