Bouquet of Prayers

Hello lovely peeps!  I hope you're having a lovely day and evening.  It was rainy here today, but mild.  So, after some morning chores and errands, I retreated to my craft room.  I did some much needed straightening in here before I could play.  Sometimes ya just gotta do that!  

After everything was nice and tidy, I played with my new Daniel Smith watercolors.  This was my first attempt at using 'real' watercolors - from the tube and not in cake form.  I'm really liking them, but need lots of practice.
I used Simon Says Stamp Bouquet of Thanks set, along with SSS Prayers stamp set and die.  I watercolored the flowers, then fussy-cut them.  I layered a white A2 card with some black and white striped patterned paper, and a strip of coral card stock, then added the cut flowers.
I cut the prayer die on coral card stock, and added that with clear foam tape for dimension.  Then embossed the phrase onto a scrap of white card stock, and added that with foam tape.

Some Studio Katia sparkling crystals add the finishing touch.

I am adding my card to these challenges today:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything goes

Simon Says Flickr Challenge - # 100 Anything goes

The Card Concept Challenge  - Inspiration photo - I was inspired by the flowers, and chose the classy and elegant style of card to create
Finally, I'm adding it to The Daily Marker 30 Day Color Challenge - Day 27!

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to take some time for yourself today.    I appreciate you taking the time to visit, and enjoy reading your comments.
