Put a flower on it!

Hey friends!  A quick post today that i wanted to share with you.  A friend of mine recently got a new job and I made this card for her to congratulate her on the accomplishment.  Congrats Girlfriend!  You know who you are! 

This card was created by repeatedly stamping these cute bugs from HA/Lia Griffith on watercolor paper with archival ink.  I then came back in with my Zigs to watercolor the images.  I set that aside and did another ladybug and a flower (from a VERY old HA set I have, name  unknown) and water-colored them as well.  I die cut the embroidery hoop and center from a Neat and Tangled die and accented the center with faux stitching.  I placed the flower and lady bug on top and added this sentiment from Mama Elephant Labeled Messages.  I really love how it all turned out together, the colors and the way the message pops!  I hope my friend enjoys receiving it too! :)
