Papertrey ink August 2016 Blog Hop Challenge

It's time again for the Papertrey ink monthly blog hop.  We are supposed to make a card using the inspiration from the photo.  Normally not long after looking at the photo I can picture in my mind what sort of card I wanted to do.  This time nada, zip...nothing!  So I sought out more inspiration.
I found the wonderful card above on Betsy's blog.  You can check out more details on her blog here.
I loved how the flowers tucked into the bold sentiment.  I also loved the artsy background.

I pulled the melon berry and berry sorbet colors from the photo and made my watercolored background.  I also took some fine linen ink and watered down white acrylic paint to produce splatters over my watercolored background.  The flowers were stamped in the same colors. I added a hint of navy as the centers of the flowers too.   The text block birthday die was cut with fun foam.  I accidentally used my white Wink of Stella glitter marker (instead of the clear) on the flowers.  However, I wasn't about to start over.  Luckily...The white maker gave the flowers a white washed look which actually worked well with my watercolored background.  A few iridescent sequins finishes the card.
