Stampin' Up! Every Moment and Tiny Tags make a pretty Thank You card

Ok, so I've watercolouring like mad lately (can you tell?) :-P And, tonight was no different! I made up a card using a stamp set that was yet to see ink... So, I broke it out tonight...
The first thing I did on this card was to stamp those daisies. I stamped them on some watercolour paper using a mask to get them to sit behind one another. I then watercoloured them using my Stampin' Write Markers. Once that was done, I found some matching card stock. The base is So Saffron, followed by Whisper White, and then Bashful Blue which I had run through the Big Shot with an embossing folder, than with some Craft White ink, I sponged over the top to make the circles 'pop.' I added some beautiful satin pleated ribbon that I won from The Ribbon Carousel Facebook Page, and tied a bow, adding a sentiment from Tiny Tags. The main image panel has dimensionals underneath to make it stand out :)
I am entering this into a couple of challenges... First up, is the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, I thought those two thin lines weren't going to look balanced, but I think it works now that I've made it... Next up is the Simon Says Stamp Dots or Stripes challenge, and last but not least the Ribbon Carousel Challenge, which was to be inspired by this delicious cupcake image (below). I was inspired by that adorable baby blue and the delicate feel to the image... (not sure I've translated it correctly, but hey, I'll give it a shot) 
I'll be back over the weekend to share another scrap page with you.
Happy Stamping!
