Heartfelt thanks

This card is for today's Colour Challenge at Splitcoaststampers. The colours this week are Crushed Curry Pumpkin Pie and Watermelon Wonder. Such wonderful colours. I don't have Stampin Up products, so I used what I had on hand. I embossed my background using the Crushed Curry and clear embossing paste. It is very soft from the emboss resist method I used. I made the Watermelon colour by sponging with a bright pink and sponging over with cream ink. I embossed my sentiment with the pumpkin ink and clear embossed. Behind the sentiment on the back of the vellum I swiped the crushed curry. For my rose I used my aqua brush to pick up my colours, drying and adding colour again. I mounted the rose on foam strips. To finish I added a few sequins and a lone crystal. Thanks for having a look today.
