 Good Morning.
I have a pretty simple card today using a sweet stamp from Penny Black called All You Need.
The little flowers look like hearts so I decided to make a 'heartfelt' thanks card using it.

I began by masking the sides of my card front with Painter's tape then placed the stamp in my MISTI and coloured the stamp with Memento markers, sprayed with water and stamped.  I repeated that process until I was happy with the results.
Next I watercolored in the background and let it dry.  
I stamped the sentiment from the Sentiment Collection set in the corner.
I wanted to add more depth and interest to the background so I pressed some pieces of drywall tape on my ink pad and stamped over the bkg giving the piece added texture.
I also stamped and white heat embossed the Script stamp over the flower areas just because I love it.

 Adding my card to these challenges:
