Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge : Anniversary /Wedding

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

This week the challenge is


We are showcasing Impression Obsession Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 gift Voucher  for the Simon Says Stamp Store  to one randomly selected winner !

Here are my cards for the challenge inspiration.

To begin my first card, I stamped a beautiful bouquet from Floral Bliss by Simon Says Stamp Exclusive, on a piece of watercolor paper using Wow Embossing Ink Pad . Then I applied Wow Embossing Glitter Clear Sparkle on it  and then heat set it. I colored the images using my Zig Clean Real Brush Markers then I fussy cut it. 
I die cut Wonky Rectangle out of 110 Neenah White Card Stock, then ink blended it using Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose, then added water splatter on it. 

Next, I diecut MR & MRS Dies  out of Simon Says Silver Glitter Card Stock, and I made two more diecuts using white card stock, and then I glued them top on top to give dimension.
I put the diecuts and colored bouquet onto the panel using glue and thin foam tapes. Then adhered the panel onto A2-sized pink card base I made with Simon Says Cotton Candy Card Stock. I embellished the card by adding 6mm and 4mm Ballerina Pink Sequins and 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. 
I love glowing look from silver glitter card stock, Wow embossing glitter, and iridescent sequins all together. 

For my second card, I stamped Verbena Blossom stamp on watercolor paper, then I watercolored it using my Daniel Smith Watercolors, and then I cut the panel using smaller Wonky Rectangle die. I also cut white card stock using MR & MRS Dies and then applied Wow Embossing Glitter Midnight Dream by using adhesive, then heat set it. 

I diecut two lovely pattern papers using larger Wonky Rectangle die and then adhered a half piece of top panel onto the other. I rounded white ribbon and lace, then I mounted my watercolor panel onto them using foam tapes. I embellished the card by adding Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix and 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins
