Concord & 9th May Guest Designer - Sending You Sunshine

Hello, crafty friends!  I'm enjoying my time as a Concord & 9th Guest Designer for this month, today I'm showcasing the new Concord & 9th, Sophisticated Script Uppercase Alphabet.
For my card today, I used the newly released, Sophisticated Script Uppercase along with the lower case Sophisticated Script to create a shaker card.  I knew I wanted to create something cheerful to send to a friend so I started out by stamping my sentiment in black Palette ink (I know these alphabet stamp sets may look intimidating to stamp with, but they are so easy to use and line up).  
Next I stamped a few of the floral images around the edge of my cardstock piece using the Wildflower stamp set and Versa Mark ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.  After that I used my Zig Clean Color Real pens to do a bit of watercoloring over the embossed images.  Once my watercoloring was dry, I die cut a rectangle from the center of my watercolored piece and created my shaker, adding gold sequins and flowers as my shaker bits.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Don't forget, you can follow me on InstagramTwitter and Pinterest to see what I'm up to.

Breath-taken away STUNNING! One question: did you use cardstock or water-colour paper for your Wildflower panel? I'm in awe....
