I needed to give my hands a break from all the snipping that's involved in finishing a raggy quilt so thought I make a card for an upcoming birthday.
To start with I mixed a white and a red watercolour paint to make various shades of pink. After applying paint to a panel of watercolour card, that had been moistened with water, I added some splashes in the stronger pinks. Once the panel was dry I added the "happy" die cut sentiment that was made up of three layers and the gold embossed sentiment panel.

Then to finish I added a sprinkling of sequins and gems in various shades of pink. I don't eat much ice cream but every time I look at this card it reminds me of one ice cream that I do like, a brunch, and now I'd fancy having one! Because of the splashes of paint and the sparkle of the sequins and gems I thought the card would fit into the showers part of Simon Says Stamp's April Showers and\or Spring Flowers Challenge.
