Thank God for You card

I am trying to get a fun stock pile of cards to send to friends, I want to share one of them with you today. I used the CAS(e) this sketch for my inspiration.
 The background to my card is the result of some playing around with stamps, inks and paints.  The label is from a brand new set of Hero Arts stamps, My Favorites set, the sentiment is from the Blessing to You set.
 On a piece of acetate, I sprayed two colors of Stephanie Barnard Clearsnap sprays.  This became my "stamp pad".  I then stamped the background stamp into this puddle of inks.  I then stamped the background stamp on my white cardstock.  I love the watercolor look.  The bursts are a Hero Arts stamp that I inked with some Distress Paint.  The flower was stamped in black and embossed with clear embossing powder, then cut out.  I sprayed this with some of the same spray ink coloring the white portions of the image.
