June Release Day #1: Water Lily Birthday

Its that time of the month again, Flourishes is having a release on Friday.  Today I'm showing you a card that I made using Water Lilies and Koi (being released Friday).  For a chance to win this set for one day only blog candy, head on over to the Flourishes Newsletter...plus info about the release party.
I stamped the water lily twice and colored it in using Copic markers, then layered them using foam tape.  The paper is some of my scraps, but I'm pretty positive its Prima.  For some contrast, I added some aqua colored satin ribbon, and pewter colored pearls.  The sentiment is from the Sweet Violets set. 
A few days ago was Marcella Hawley's Birthday (one of Flourishes stamp designers)  so this pretty little thing is on its way to her home.
"Water Lily Birthday"

Make sure you take a little blog hop to check out all of the wonderful creations using this set.
