Unity "Be Inspired" - "finger painting" birthday

I finally get a chance to play along in Unity's Be Inspired challenge!

Here's the card sketch:

I kept the layers the length of the card:

Used: http://unitystampco.com/shop/kind-beautiful/

To colour the flowers, I used my little finger and rubbed it lightly on a distress ink pad (barn door) and rubbed from the bottom of the flower outwards. I had to make 6 of these cards so that saved time but I also like how it came out!
