Cute Card Thursday #41 - Open Theme

As this is the last challenge from Cute Card Thursday now until 8th January we are having an open theme so you can enjoy yourself and do whatever takes your fancy!

This card is for my sister-in-law's 40th birthday today. Colouring in this Sarah Kay stamp is my first attempt at water-colouring with my Distress Ink re-inkers since I got the Hot Press paper and I am reasonably happy with it. Needs more practice but the paper really does make a big difference (thanks Jacqui x). Paper is K&Co, lace from Scrapz, flowers Scrapfairies and Mad About Cards and the sentiment is a Craftwork Cards flower coloured with pigment ink and triple embossed.
