Chevron Florals and Blog Hop Winner

Hi crafty friends!
Happy Tuesday! 
Before I get into the card today I wanted to share the winner from the Creative Fools blog hop.
The winner is lucky #17 which is Marianne!!
Congrats! If you send me your full name and address in the contact me area of my blog I'll make sure to get the prize out to you right away.

Ok onto my card.I have yet another floral card to share with you today. Since I got the In Bloom:Addie's Garden set from Winnie and Walter I just can't seem to put it away. I also went ahead stamped a bunch of flowers ahead of time, colored and cut them out and then of course needed to make cards for them all, so I have had quite a few cards featuring these pretty flowers lately.

Ok on to the card. This is kind of a bolder look for me but I like it!
I started with a white card base and stamped the Zig Zag background stamp set from Hero Arts in black. For my flowers I stamped them in Versafine ink on watercolor paper and heat embossed with gold embossing poweder, I then colored them in with my Zig real brush markers and a water brush. After fussy cutting them out I adhered them on my card where I wanted. I popped up the bottom 2 with some foam dimensional tape. For my sentiment I die cut a border from the Stitched Borders 3 die set from PPP and stamped the thank you sentiment across it from the Scripty Sayings stamp set from Lawn Fawn. To finish my card off I scatted some sparkling clear sequins and gold sequins from PPP around the card.
I love the way flowers look against the background! Hope you enjoyed.
Thank you SO much for stopping by!!
