Embossed Watercolor

Good Morning to everyone....what a beautiful day!! We worked on my new stamp room yesterday!! Since Mandy has moved out I get to move into her room and make it back into my stamp room. I pulled the carpet up last week and yesterday we laid bamboo flooring. I will take a picture of my room when I get it all together!! I'm so excited.
I made this card last night. I was trying for 3 different challenges, but I only ended up with two. The sketch was from Mish, the Try a new Technique Challenge at Splitcoast - Embossed Watercolor, and the color challenge last week of Lovely Lilac, Pretty in Pink, and Certainly Celery. I had to add the Apricot Appeal to mine to balance it though.
I used the hostess stamp set Infinite Goodness and embossed the main image and dragonfly on Confetti White and watercolored with ink pads. I added a touch of white gel pen to the berries and put Crystal Effects on them to give them more depth. I used my rectangle Nestibilities to cut and emboss them, then layered it on Lovely Lilac. The patterned paper is from SU and for the Lovely Lilac I used the Floral Background and stamped on white cardstock. I like this layout because I could use my scraps of DSP. I stamped the sentiment with Lovely Lilac on Apricot Appeal and used the rhinestone brads on the sides.

Hope everyone has a great day, thanks for stopping by and leaving comments, I love to read them!!
