Happy Blooms and Happier Mail!

Hey there. It's Friday evening here in Australia and I've just been to the Post Office to pick up a little gift I bought myself! I was feeling a bit down the other day and decided retail Therapy would help!

But before I get to that, I have a card to share for the Muse Card Challenge.

I was inspired by the gold embossed daisies, but decided to use silver instead.  I began by using Geliplate print I'd made last week with a Stamploration's stencil. Then I stamped and embossed the daisies and added the pink, using my new Abandoned Coral distress marker. It has a very painterly look, which is what I was aiming for. The butterfly is a Poppy Stamps die-cut, which I silver embossed. The stamps  are also  from  Stamplorations.

I'm also entering the Simon Monday Challenge and the Simon Wednesday Challenge which both have an Anything Goes theme this week.

ETA: Just remembered to add this to the STAMPlorations Anything Goes Challenge!
