With Sympathy - SimonSaysStamp Wednesday Challenge: Fantastic Florals

Today, I like to share a card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Fantastic Florals. It features the Simon Says Stamp Sketch Ranunculus and Handwritten Borders stamp set along with an adorable bunny from Mama Elephant's Pix's Favorites stamp.
I used a stamp positioning tool to double stamp the floral images. Working one colour at a time, I first stamped with Memento ink and then stamped with the Versamark watermark ink so I can use clear embossing powder and heat set it. This makes the colours more vibrant so the flowers really stand out. 
I stamped the bunny from Mama Elephant's Pix's Favorite stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black Ink, then used clear embossing powder and heat set it. Then I coloured it in with copic markers. To finish it off, I used glossy accents on the heart to make it pop and adhered it to the card with foam squares.

I cut a strip of vellum paper and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. To adhere it to the card, I put tiny drops of Tombow mono aqua liquid glue on the back of the sentiment and folded the sides of the vellum and taped it to the back of the panel.  That finishes off the card. 
For the envelope, I used the We R Memory Keepers 123 Punch Board to create it out of orange cardstock. Then I embossed it with the We R Memory Keepers Gemstone Folder.
