Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and Distress Ink Background - Floral Card for the Create a Smile Stamps Challenge

Hi everyone! Today I am back with a floral card I made for the new Create a Smile Stamps challenge. We loved all the beautiful entries in the past two weeks, and look forward to seeing what you create next!
Without further ado, let's reveal the challenge theme!

Create a Smile Stamps has quite a range of  gorgeous floral stamps, and for this card I used the beautiful Aloha Spirit stamp set. I am already in the mood for summer, so this was the perfect choice  to daydream of sunsets at the beach. :)
As a first step I stamped my images on some Fabriano Bristol Smooth cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink, embossed them with clear embossing powder, and colored them with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.

For my sunset background I did some ink blending with Distress Inks in Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry and Carved Pumpkin on a piece of Fabriano Bristol Smooth Cardstock (which is very similar to Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock). 
I then stamped my sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

In order to create a window on my card I cut some white cardstock using the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches dies and the Create a Smile Stamps Stacked Pierced Ovals dies. I also used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Stackables to cut some black cardstock to a standard A2 size and create a frame for my focal panel.

And that's it for today! I really hope you like this card, and I hope you will join us and enter your creations for your chance to win a 25€ gift certificate to the Create a Smile Stamps store! 
Make sure to follow the challenge rules, you can find those, along with some really gorgeous inspiration from the Design Team, on the Create a Smile Stamps blog!
Thank you all so much for stopping by, and have a great day!
