The Flower Challenge #27 - Use an Older Stamp or Die

Hello everyone!!! 

We've arrived already the last month of the year 2018!!! Hard to believe, right?!! 
Hope you all are having warm and cozy December! 

Today I want to share my DT card for The Flower Challenge with you. Our theme for December is 

Use an Older Stamp or Die.

I have to share what my 10 year old son said, as he saw the theme on my calendar.... 
"Mom don't be too hard on yourself!"  :) :) :)  He didn't know what a die is! 

Now to my card :) ! 
I used one of my first stamp sets, Tiger Lily by Penny Black, for my card. 

I stamped the Tiger Lily in Antique Linen DI two times after masking the first one on Ranger watercolor cardstock. To fill the bottom left area I drew a long leaf.

I watercolored the lilies and added soft blue and green color on the background.
The sentiment is also from Penny Black. The stamp is called Happy Wishes. I gold heat embossed it directly on the colored panel.

I cut the panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it on the cardbsae.

Hope you liked my card! Now it's your turn!  Join in the fun, if you have old floral stamps or dies to which you gave some love a while back! 

Please hop over to The Flower Challenge blog for more inspiration from my lovely team mates! 

Have a wonderful day!

Oh my goodness... out of the mouths of babes, right? I think he was quite wonderful letting you know how he felt!
Now let's talk about this gorgeous lily... there isn't one thing about your card that speaks 'old' TaeEun! But I'll be truthful, I've not seen it before today! REally beautiful card, and perfect custom art work, too!

So very beautiful, TaeEun! Beautiful and delicate. The flowers have come to life! Really love it!

Thanks for my chuckle of the day, TaeEun. I had to reread the challenge through the eyes of a child to understand what he was thinking What a wonderful lily stamp. I have an old PB lily but it's different from this one. And I've never colored it as beautifully as you have this one.

I am drooling over these gorgeous lilies TaeEun and so beautifully coloured, and the the way you have placed the gold embossed sentiment looks great, and love that touch of blue and green around some of the edges looks so pretty. x

Oh, TaeEun, I'm smiling at the sweet innocence of your little boy and his reassuring advise to you, bless his little heart, we should all retain a bit of that innocence throughout our lives.
Now, your card left me breathless, what a stunning creation, your coloring is beyond amazing, love how you drew that leaf to fill the bottom of your panel, simply incredible.
I love the Penny Black flower stamps on the Slapstick collection, they are perfect for a beautiful watercolor look.
Stunning card my dear.
