Triple Challenge Tuesday!

I made a quick card for 3 different challenges today. This is for the Flourishes FTTC38 challenge to watercolor, the Mercy Kerin MTTSC44 sketch challenge, and the Splitcoast stampers CC241 color challenge to use Bravo Burgundy, Cameo Coral, Very Vanilla and optional Always Artichoke.
I began with a square card, using PTI Vintage Cream cardstock, and used Cameo Coral, Bravo Burgundy and Artichoke. I stamped the Flourishes Sweet Peas image on wc paper with Versafine onyx black and embossed it with clear ep - then colored it with Tombows and a wet brush. The ovals were cut with Petite Nestabilities, and the sentiment was stamped with an Inkadinkado stamp and layered using the modern label and word window punches. The dsp is SU retired. The tiny flower is actually a piece of ribbon I've had for ages. It's all flowers strung together, so I just cut one off, added a Kaiser pink gemstone (along with a few others) and this card was done!
Thanks for stopping by on this great Tuesday..........wishing you all a most fabulous day!
