WWDB Challenge - Lotus Encouragement

Hi, stamp friends! We are in the final week of the What We Do Best Challenge (Encouragement) and I have a very feng shui card to share. 

I am loving black and white on kraft paper these days, so I created a card with very basic colors, but such a soft image that it just seems to balance out. I used two stamp sets:

I just loved the "zen" combination of the Feng Shui sentiments with Lotus Corner. These two stamps were made for each other!!! (Not literally, lol. But I love them together!)
I stamped and embossed the lotus in white, then added a soft fill with a white colored pencil. I then added soft pink and green shades to lightly accent the flowers.

The sentiment was stamped and embossed in black. After cutting apart the sections, I added a sparkly black edge using a Nuvo Glitter Marker (Urban Graphite). I attached them with foam tape; four on the front and one on the inside. I also stamped and embossed the lotus on the inside of the card, but did not add any color to it. I did the same to the envelope.
I hope you have all been having fun with these challenges. Each week there has been a $50 gift certificate awarded via random draw to one of the lucky participants. It's not too late to play along! Simply post your card (must have an envelope!) on the Technique Junkies Facebook Page and add the hashtag: #WWDB for your chance to win.  I can't wait to see what you create!
