Your Fabulous - Thank-you so much!

Wanted to get one more card in for this week's SimonSaysStamp Wednesday Challenge of  "Anything Goes" as this is also the last day for Kathy's 30 day color challenge over at The Daily Marker and wanted to dedicate this card to Kathy as a "Thank-you" for hosting this color challenge and for all the inspiration, tips, and lessons throughout the month as it's always invaluable.

Thank-you so much for hosting this challenge a second time around. I've learned so much again and appreciate all the time and effort you put into this 30 day challenge. I've enjoyed myself so much and meet so many wonderful talented friends.
Here is my card:
Here I started with creating a base panel using the Diagonal Stripes background from Simon Says Stamp and white embossed it first before adding color which was Tickled Pink ink. Next, I went on to create several flowers using different color combos using the set: Modern Blooms

Since I've been loving watercoloring, I stamped the sentiment down using the set: Simply Fabulous Sayings and used my new Zig Clean Color Real Brush to add some color over it using Light blue and very light yellow over it. 

Framed the sentiment using the Stitched Rectangle using Kraft cardstock and added the flowers by using foam mount and adhering them to the frame. Last but not least added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

As always, if you haven't checked out the challenge site, please do so to see more inspiration and plus join in on the last sketch.
