I love the colors of the TGIF challenge.
Here's the challenge:
And here's my card:
I used my aqua painter and Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie reinkers to create the background. After it was dry I embossed the thank you in gold over the top. I've tried embossing before I watercolor the background but then I have problems with the ink pooling up in the grooves of the embossing. My background paper is Melon Mambo textured cardstock from my stash. I know... It's been a looong time since that was available! Let's just say I have a few supplies on hand that I need to use up! 
Thanks for stopping by!
