Beautiful Bloom

Dear Ones~
Well, this is the first post I have done since August 21st. As many of you know, we were on vacation, camping on the shores of Lake Superior. My hope was that I could share my time up there with you here on my blog. However, the internet was so sketchy that I couldn't upload anything. I was very disappointed.
So anyway, this card today was made for the Mod Squad Challenge and the Stamp Out Cancer Challenge #2 over at StampTV. Both challenges asked us to use pink on our card, since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Here's my card:
I love coloring the beautiful floral images from the GKD stamp set Bold Blooms. Here I watercolored the petals, and then hand colored the edging around each petal with gold paint. I just find watercoloring flowers very soothing.

Here are the ingredients I used:
GKD Pure Luxury White Card Stock
Gold Foiled Paper
The Haute Pink Stack by DCWV
GKD Bold Blooms Stamp Set
GKD Fabulous Frames Stamp Set
Floral Ovals and Standard Ovals Dies by Spellbinder
GKD Gold Embossing Powder
