Thank you card using authentique for ss

Hi all, Happy Tuesday! I hope today gets your crafty mojo flowing! I have to admit this last week ,my mojo had been lacking, so when that happens i take out some basics and play. this week i played with my watercolor markers and authentique paper. The authentique paper is so thick that it was perfect to hold it's shape up to the moisture. So, the black and white floral print just called to me to color it. First, i cut my paper down the middle and folded it in half to make two 6x 6 cards. the one that had the flowers in the middle i used . I then decided i wanted a border so i trimmed a lil bit off the sides and backed it with a piece of the ombre black/gray paper . I then colored the flowers and leaves in the middle leaving the rest uncolored and room for more embellishing .Then i diecut a frame and layered on the oval diecut,added the letter stickers and butterfly i made. Next i added pearl dots and ribbon. Lastly, i added a bit of pink ink along the edges to bring the color around the card. 

Below are some pictures of how i made the details on the card: 

What i used:
Authentique classique papers,diecut and letter stickers
Watercolor pencils
Water blending pen
queen and co. pearl dots
Butterfly punch
Frame die
Elmers tape runner 
Ribbon from my stash
