Hello my lovely stampers!
I am playing another challenge with this card!

I just got this stamp set along with the matching die set from Ellen Hutson, and simply wanted to play with them. So why not play a challenge? Luckily I have a little challenge patrol emails me beautiful challenges, thanks Nina! One of them in the recent email was Just Add Ink. Their Inspirational photos were just gorgeous! 

And here is my take...

I cannot say enough how much I LOVE these flowers! Are they not the most beautiful paper thing you have ever seen!? 
So I first heat embossed those lovely flowers in gold on my new obsession, watercolor paper, brushed Blushing Bride all over, then watercolored the flowers with Calypso Coral. Those pinks are just gorgeous against gold, aren't they!?

I layered the die cut flower and leaves on Colypso Coral and Gumball Green, the metallic gold just pops on these colors and just simply lovely!

I added some gold confetti from Winnie & Walter, and I am entering this card in Little Tangles Challenge!  What a pretty site this is! I could make so many cards with sequins! My collections isn't big yet, but it's only a matter of time.....hee hee 

I really liked all the elements in the Just Add Ink inspirational photos, the colors, petty flowers, burlap, crochet trims, gold accent... What do you think, did I capture them well!?
