Double D - Flowers of the Month~July through December

Dear Ones~
Our next challenge is up over at Double D. We continue with Flowers of the Month, this time it's July through December. Here is the Mood Board for inspiration:

My birth month is July, so my birthday flower is Delphinium or Water Lily. I chose the Water Lily, and here is my card:

I was so happy I had this Water Lily stamp from Ink on 3. It's perfect for the challenge. I colored it with alcohol markers and fussy cut it.  The Perennial Essence patterned paper from Stampin' Up worked perfectly too with the Water Lily theme. I used some pretty baubles from Trinity Stamps to complete the watery look.

 The Ingredients:
Recollections Very Violet Card Stock
GKD White Card Stock
Blick Alcohol Markers
SU Perennial Essence Patterned Paper 
Ink on 3 Water Lily Stamp Set
SU Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp for Greeting
