Sending you a little THANKS

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone!
I hope you are having a great week so far. Are you ready for the big Memorial Day weekend? It looks like we have some rain in the forecast so we may be staying a little closer to home. Maybe, I will be able to get back in my craft room some and craft...fingers crossed?!

I have been playing around and creating some fun water colored backgrounds and I really like how this one turned out and thought I would make a quick card with it~
The card base is Spellbinders 5x7 Reflective Moment die followed by Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight die. I created the background using Tim Holtz Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet distressed inks and a little water. 
The flowers are stamped with My Creative Time's~Just Because stamp set and heat embossed in white. The sentiment is My Creative Time's~Fun Notes stamp/die set. The "thanks" was die cut a couple times for extra dimension and embossed with white shabby embossing enamel.
Simple...but still pretty?!
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) DL.ART Thankful Thursday~Flowers and/or graduation
2.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday
3.) Scrapy Land Challenge #42 Lot's of Layers (spellbinders dies)
