Addicted to Stamps and More #112 Make your Mark

My card for the day forAddicted to Stamps & More 
I have been in my craft room all day and this is only the second card I have made.  Trying some different watercolor techniques and things were just not turning out.  This one did work.  I was having more trouble with the first card.  In fact, I am happy with this.
PTI's Pretty Peonies embossed in white and then using distress inks to drop into the flowers and leaves.  Fun and easy technique.  Just have to drop water in the areas first and then drop the colors onto the images and they just blend themselves.
Then used a piece of vellum for the sentiment (Keep It Simple Thinking of You) embossed in Liquid Platinum.
I was supposed to see Keith Urban tomorrow night but the concert has been cancelled due to the death of Nicole's father.  Very sad and unexpected.
