Thank You - and a Lily Pad Challenge

Hello!  It feels like a long time since I've posted, even though it's only been a week.  I usually only have the time to create and post on the weekends, since I work full time.  But watch out when I retire!  Um...that's still a few years away, though :)

Anyway.  I'm playing along in the Purple Onion Designs Presents Kathy's Lily Pad Palette Challenge.
Kathy's colors are so pretty.

This is what I created.

I masked the blooms before stamping the leaves, so that it would appear that the leaves are behind them.  Well, hopefully it does!  I used Creamy Caramel ink for the leaves.  But, on my first try, that color was too strong.  So I started over and stamped off onto scratch paper before stamping the image on my card panel.  Much better!  The matted panel is attached with dimensional adhesive to give it a little lift.  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso.
Well...that's it from me today.  It's been a very busy weekend, so only 1 card to post.  It looks like all of our March weekends are filling up, so you might not hear much from me this month.  But I'll try!
Thanks for taking a look,

What's in it?
