You are simply amazing

I had some time today and made a card for a couple challenges.


It is inspired by the current Cloud9 blog hop picture.  The row of ikat border was echo of the ikat napkin in the picture.  I tried my hands stamping with watercolor to mimic the flowers in the picture.


There is a new challenge: Fusion. It is a sketch and/or inspiration challenge.  Not only the concept of the challenge is fun.  I also love the science geek feel of the blog.  The colors of the flowers on my card was inspired by the fusion photo.
It is also entered into Moxie Fab World: the Wonder of Watercolor challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,

Supplies:
cardstock: 
Avery Elle card stock
Stamp: Avery Elle Ikat, Petals and stems, Wplus9 quite like you
Ink: Fresh ink limeade, Rangers worn lipstick, spiced marmalade, Memento tuxedo black
Other: Avery Elle sequins, embroidery floss, washi tape
