21 cards - #6

Hi friends.  Here I am again with another card for the challenge on Motley Soul Mixed-Media Art.  This is #6.  If I keep going at this rate, I may actually complete them all. 

Please refer to this post to see how I made the base for my cards.

For this card, I decided to use my Inspiration Jar again.  (See this post for an explanation.)  My daughter decided to help, so she pulled out three prompts for me: ribbon, water, and background stamps. 

I started with leaf & floral background from Hero Arts, and colored randomly with distress markers.  Then I spritzed it with water and stamped on my card.  I really love this background. 

Then I pulled out some grosgrain ribbon to match the colors and glued them near the bottom. 

Finally, I pulled out an already stamped, colored (with Copics) and cut out flower (Aztec Gold Sunflowers - Heartfelt Creations).  I wrote the word 'bloom' on the petals and glued it down and decided my card was finished.  I'm sure I could have added more, but I chose to leave it as is.  I think simple is often more effective than going overboard with added embellishments. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
