With Thanks for all that you've done

Hi sweet bloggy friends! I hope your having a wonderful week! Its been so sunny here and everything is blooming, including my nose!! Finally today, it's raining again and we suppose to have 40 MPH winds. I'm just not ready to have spring yet as were in a drought and need more rain! But on paper I'm ready for spring as you can see I'm all about the flowers lately!

I'm playing along this week at The Card Concept
 
This stamp set is one of Wplus 9's new releases, called Beautiful Bouquet: Ranunculas . Basically, I white heat embossed the image  and water colored the image in. I added a simple accent of diagonal lines from a die set from MFT. The striped paper is PTI. That's it!
 
Thanks for stopping be! Hugs, Char

Absolutely gorgeous! Love this stamp set, and you've used it to the max with the white embossing, and wonderful water colors. Really like this one. The curvy die shape and bottom trims take it right over the top to marvelous. Great work on the W/Coloring, BTW. TFS

Char, your card is, in every way, a beautiful bouquet of Ranunculas: bright, fresh, stunning! The edging adds such impact. Our incredibly low Canadian dollar is having an impact on my spending, but...I'm adding this image to my ever-growing list for when things begin to turn around! In the meantime, saving my nickels and dimes! Love your card, my friend!
hugs~c
