Happy Birthday Concord & 9th!

One of my favorite stamp companies - Concord and 9th - turns one today and I wanted to help them celebrate by sharing a card using their stamps and dies! 

I smooshed and splattered distress inks over the background (Ranger watercolor cardstock): Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Shabby Shutters, Crushed Olive.  I then white embossed two of the outline images from the Wildflower stamp set.  I die cut 3 of the coordinating wildflower dies from another panel I watercolored with Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber distress inks.  **A little hint...be sure to look for their special bundles that pair the stamps and dies together...it's a better price!  The You've Got This die sentiment was cut twice and adhered together to give it more substance.  I used MFT's Diagonal Stripes background stamp with Old Olive (SU) ink and added the teensy scallop borders using Reverse Confetti's Edge Essential Confetti Cuts.

I'm also playing along with Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge
where Fabulous Florals is the theme. 

That's all for today!  Thanks for stopping by and commenting...I love hearing from you!

I really like your "smooshed and splattered" backgrounds! Would love to have fabric like this!
