Wildflower - (CTD387)

Hi there!  It's Wednesday and time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.  Before I get to my card, I'd like welcome this month's guest designer, Amy Rohl.
For my card I used a new to me stamp set by Concord & 9th, Wildflower.  I used a piece of watercolor paper and stamped my images using a Versa Mark ink pad and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I used some Tim Holtz distress inks, festive berries, spiced marmalade, mustard seed and cracked pistachio to do my watercoloring.  For my sentiment I used the My Favorite Things stamp set, Label Maker Sentiments and stamped them using a black Palette ink pad.  The whole watercolored panel was popped up using foam tape and added to my white card base.  To add a little shimmer to my card, I added some iridescent sequins scattered throughout my flowers.
For more inspiration, check out the design teams' blog links below OR you can go to the Color Throwdown blog for details on how to play along and you can see all the sample entries in one location.
