Happy Mother's Day Roses - {PP241/CTS#119}

 Hello!  I had some time in my craft studio over the weekend and was able to create a few cards, one of them is the Mother's Day card I'm sharing today.  I used two challenges as inspiration for my card, the first one is the Paper Players Challenge #241 Clean and Simple: Watercolor and the second CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #119.
For my card, I used the Altenew stamp set Painted Flowers and for the sentiment the PTI stamp set Happy Hydrangea.  I used an aqua mist card base and a piece of watercolor paper to first stamp my roses and leaves (raspberry fizz and limeade ice) then wet the area around the stamped roses and drop in aqua mist ink using my paintbrush.  Once that was dry, I stamped the black outline for the roses and added my sentiment banner along with some diamond Stickles on the roses and a few sequins for my background.

I hope you have a good Monday!
