W/C birthday card

Here we are smack in the middle of the week....and it's a great day to be alive! 
I am taking a little break from all the fall and Halloween themed cards today, not that I'm tired of making them.....*grin*
I have had this card on the back burner....so to speak, waiting for a new challenge blog to start up.....more about that later.
This hydrangea image is from a stamp and die set made by Stampendous.  I chose to just use the stamp for this card. To stamp the image I used a light Lilac marker to color the stamp then went back and used the marker inks for water colors....applied with a brush. Green inks were used for the background wash.......but the flowers didn't stand out very well, so I took a black marker and sketched around the flowers.  Mounting it on the black cs really made them pop and I fell in love with it! Doesn't it feel good when that happens??
Now about that new challenge blog.  It is called  The Flower Challenge ......simple enough to understand what kind of challenges they are going to have.
We would love you to display our banner !
The DT work for this challenge is just beautiful and I hope you can take a moment to hop over there and take a look.
