It worked!

When I saw Suzy's cards using the new SSS Circle Doodle Background stamp, it made me think of SSS Sketch Ranunculus.  
I heat embossed both blossoms on Bristol paper with Stampendous Moonstone powder.  I colored them with Zigs Wine Red & Bright Yellow, using my waterbrush to blend each color out to a lighter shade. When they dried, I covered them with Spectrum Noir clear sparkle--oh so beautiful in person!  
The die cut word is PTI Counting my Blessings--stacked 3 high & clear embossed.  I die cut the panel with Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangle & mounted it to a kraft card base. Finished off with PPP gold sequins--another Thanksgiving card ready to mail! I'm entering SSS Flickr #57, Double D & Time Out.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
