thank you


I started by using Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die to create a delicate background for my flowers. Next, I used the Virginia Rose 3D Die Set and cut the layers out of watercolour paper. Then, I used Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set to add colour to the die cuts. To finish the card I stamped my sentiment from Heartfelt Sentiments Stamp Set.
