Coral and Gold: Fresh In Bloom Congrats

This is not exactly the card I had planned,
but while J and I were crafting together late this afternoon there was a
juice spill that...well... you know.
Juice and paper don't mix.
That card was halfway done, but nevermind.
Here's what I came up with from the salvageable pieces.
(J felt so badly about it - but it was a good chance to show
how we can solve problems if we stay calm!)
These die-cut Papertrey blooms are colored with watercolor pencils.
As a matter of fact, it's a set I inherited from my grandfather.

I used the ZIG glue pen around the edges of the blossom and leaf
to add a nice embossed gold edge.  I also embossed the Altenew splatters.

Here are the challenges:
ColourQ #343: (2nd entry)
(I've just oriented the card base horizontally, rather than vertically.) 
Emboss, Image, Die Cut
