Showered With Love Challenge

The current challenge on the Ai blog is "Showered With Love" - we want to see your Shower cards, either Baby or Wedding.  I went with wedding, as I've had this bouquet idea using the Art Impressions Watercolor stamps for a while:
 Typically, the Ai florals are used with a pot or container of some kind, but I thought they would make a great wedding bouquet (although this would make a great birthday or thank you card, too!)  I stamped my flowers in shades of pink and purpley-blue, tucked in some greenery, then hand drew in the ribbon that ties them together.  Finally, I added the stems.  I used a damp paintbrush to soften all the lines.
 I used a stitched oval die to trim my watercolour paper, matted it with some Sorbet cardstock and mounted it with pop dots onto my base.  I stitched my patterned paper with my sewing machine before adhering it to the card base, then tied a white organdy ribbon around it and finished up with some epoxy bubbles in blue & green.
 Check out what the rest of the design team has to share today over on the Ai blog, and you can link up your shower creation while you're there.
Watercolour sets used are: WC Flowers
