Sweet Pea Bouquet

Hi everyone.  One more bouquet card for the CAS Watercolour July Challenge before it closes in a few days.

We've had a fun time this month, celebrating the birthdays of two AMAZING ladies, who are two of the sweetest people you'd ever meet!  I'm so grateful to call them both friend!

One more birthday wish to Darnell and Bonnie.  I hope you both had a wonderful birthday and also enjoyed the tributes here at CAS Watercolour.  We love you!!

This was a quick card to make.  First time inking this new-to-me stamp.  This bouquet was stamped in permanent black ink and watercoloured with Distress inks and a water brush.  A white gel pen added a few dots here and there, with a black stamped sentiment to finish the card.

Here's a close-up ...
There's still a few days left before the challenge closes.  Hope you'll have some time to join us in our gallery!
