I don't know about you, but I seem to use more birthday cards than anything else, so I made my card a birthday card. (I really should try to make more masculine cards, but I know more women to give cards to than men, except for my family, who are all men. Except for one of our cats...LOL!)
Anyway, take a look:
All supplies are from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise specified:
Stamp Sets: You've Got This, and Beautiful You
Cardstock: Pool Party, Crushed Curry, Whisper White Thick
Inks: Pool Party, Crushed Curry, Lemon-Lime Twist, Archival Basic Black
Accessories: Big Shot, Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder,
Watercolor Paper, Aqua Brush, Linen Thread, Dimensionals, Paper Snips
I stamped the large flower image on some watercolor paper, using SU!'s Archival Basic Black ink. It is waterproof and I knew that I wanted to paint it with the ink colors from the challenge. I used all three ink colors when I painted the stem and leaves. Lemon-Lime Twist was just a little too bright of a green for my liking for this large Peony-like flower, but it was the color in the challenge, so I had to figure out how to make it work. The three colors together make it really interesting. I also used the Lemon-Lime Twist for the center things of the flower, with a little bit of Pool Party thrown in for good measure! What do you think?

Anyway, I hope you like my card today! I really liked making it and I'm really happy to share it with you!
