Green & gold birthday flower

Hi everyone,
 I hope Mother's Day was a happy occasion for you if you celebrate it.
My son cooked me breakfast, hubby cooked a lovely dinner and my other son phoned me to say hi, so I was happy!

This is another watercoloured background using the faux stained glass technique that I used on some earlier cards. I used watercolour paints with gold twinkling H2Os.
I stamped the flower in green versafine ink and clear embossed it for a bit of shine.

I'm linking up to the challenge at AAA Cards where they are celebrating their 1st birthday!
Congratulations and thanks for the wonderful inspiration!

At Just Us Girls the theme is embossing, wet or dry.

At Stamping Sensations it's a flower power theme.

Watercolour paper; koh i noor paints; twinkling H2Os; Penny Black Dreamy stamp; Olympia green versafine ink and clear ep; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
