Challenges at Annabelle's

For this card, I combined two challenges from Annabelle Stamps Blog...the bling sketch challenge shown on the lower right and the challenge  say it in orange and purple and a neutral I think this card looks much better in real life...the watercolor images just do not come out well in the photo.  I use the water spritz technique with 3 Hero Arts flower stamps and stamped on watercolor paper. Added some orange glaze to images.  Cut these into squares and layered on scallop squares of purple. Embossed flowers on left of ivory card base and then arranged the squares. Finished with some orange rhinestones  and one purple rhinestone
Paper: Ivory Glossy CS from stash, Bazzill Purple CS, Scraps of watercolor paper
Stamps: Hero Arts "Real Flowers"
Ink: Memento Tangelo
Rhinestones: colored plain ones with Orange Copics
Purple Stone from stash
Nesties Squares and Scalloped Squares
Cuttlebug EF Borders "With Love"
