Hey everyone, Deanna here and I am excited to present to you my first Design Team post for Dies R Us.  Here is what I made for you today.
I started with a turquoise card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" base. Next I added a black mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4".  I then took some watercolor paper and cut it to 3 3/4" X 5".  I inked the watercolor paper with Squeezed Lemonade, Abandoned Coral and Peacock Feathers distress ink.  Once I had all the colors on the paper the way I wanted them I lightly spritzed it with some water then dried the paper with my heat tool.

My flowers are from the Poppystamps Olivia Blossoms die.  I cut them out of yellow and used a yellow colored pencil to highlight the embossing in the middle of the flower. For the sentiment I used a die from Impression Obsession Thanks Word.
