Simon Says Stamp Card - God Knows

Sometimes you need to express what a get well card, or just plain thinking of you card just doesn't convey.  This 'God knows' verse from Simon Says Stamp (Blessed SSS101370) is exactly what I needed for this card for a friend...
 I created the background with an acrylic brayer and distress inks on white card stock.  Click HERE  for my post detailing how this is done.  I took this a step further than the original technique by spattering some droplets of water onto the background, then lifting the color in the areas where the drops were with a paper towel.  

When the background was dry, I stamped the Sketch Ranunculus (SSS101626) stamps and leaves from Simon Says Stamp, with India Ink black.  I love those little bubbly thingies included in this set, also.  I used a Copic multi liner to draw in the stems for the flowers.  

I embossed the verse in black onto a scrap of vellum, then attached it to a card stock scrap, then foam mounted this to the card.  I layered the panel onto a black card, and added a narrow strip of coral card stock along the left side, to match the card stock scrap under the vellum.

A spattering of clear opalescent sequins finishes off the card.

I am adding my card to these challenges today.....
