Navy Blooms ~ CCMC511, PP394

Hello stampers!  My card for today is for our latest color challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary.  They color trio is so nice and cool.  
I've been on a watercoloring kick lately and couldn't help myself from making some pretty blue blooms using the no line watercoloring technique.  And since my card is all about the flowers I'm sharing it on the Paper Players clean and simple blooms challenge #394.

I inked up one of the floral images and leaves from {Remarkable You} in Sahara Sand ink.  I applied lots of layers of Night of Navy and Emerald Envy ink, letting each layer dry in between.  I washed the entire background with Pool Party.  
I wanted a nice bold sentiment so I went with {Lovely Inside and Out}.  Both of the stamp sets I used are retiring. :( 
To finish off my card I added some Pool Party shimmer ribbon, Emerald Envy 1/4" ribbon, and a few silver sequins.  I popped the main panel with dimesionals for added interest.

I hope you'll join us at the Create with Connie and Mary Facebook page with your color combo creations.
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
