Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes!

Welcome to another challenge at Seize the Birthday and it is Anything Goes this time. 
 Just remember to keep it a Birthday card.
I have a card for you that I practiced my no line coloring on.  You can do that by stamping with a light watercolor ink like I did.  I used Old Paper Distress ink to stamp this by Technique Tuesday called Today Flowers.
 I scribbled my distress markers Peeled Paint and Pumice Stone, on a Teflon sheet and used my paint brush to color the flower. The sentiment is a die that coordinates with the stamp set,  I die cut TODAY and added Clear Embossing Powder on it and the small heart. The panel that the flower is on was die cut with a Memory Box die that I use often, Distress window collage.
 It helps to darken the background around the flower with Pumice Stone.
 Remember to finish the inside and add a matching envelope.
 Can you see the I stamped the flower on the envelope too?  It wraps around to the front.
Please stop to see what the team has made for you along with our Surprise Party Guest Julie

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone.
