Blooming Believe

Hello.  Welcome.  This card was inspired by a stamp from Unity and the Calling All Sistahs challenge.  

This believe flower is from Unity KOM 7/17.  Actually, until it arrived I hadn't even really noticed it.  Other stamps in the kit had caught my eye, but when it arrived this is the one that jumped out and got inked first.  Such is a stampers life.  The Calling All Sistahs challenge colours just fitted perfectly and I love the believe stem that adds a beautifully subtle encouraging sentiment.  I used distress inks with a blending tool for the background and with my water brush for the flower and leaves.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
