🌼 Happy 50th 🌼

Hello everyone 🙂 I hope your all having a great week so far. My card for today is using a technique which is completely new to me. I have been seeing all this gorgeous inspiration and tons of YouTube videos featuring the embossing/watercolouring technique which I’m just absolutely loving, so I thought I would have a go myself and I’m quite pleased with how it’s turned out for my first attempt. I came across some really sweet flower stamp sets for only a couple of pound so I decided I would get them and have a little play. I hope you like it.
