For my card made with the Birds & Blooms set, I did a bit more with watercoloring and embossing. To get the layered woodsy look of the wreath I stamped all of the wreath details (flowers, etc.) first, stamped & embossed the wreath with clear embossing powder over the stamped elements, and then added the watercoloring in Ripe Avocado.


A few mini rhinestones added a bit of sparkle and I added the sentiment under the wreath with a Get a Handle On It die cut from white cardstock. The card base for this card is on the white shimmer cardstock - although it is hard to see in the picture. The overall look is rustic and elegant.
