A Flower For All Seasons - Day 1

I love this set - A Flower For All Seasons. It's cute and fun to color! Last weekend, I broke out my watercolor paper and assorted pens. I found that this set was perfect for my SAI watercolor markers. I'm hopeless with the aqua painter, but love the look of watercoloring. These markers are perfect for smaller areas and give that great watercolor look. I spent last weekend coloring, but didn't do anything with the images. I decided that this week I will post one card a day using those images!

I first ran the yellow cardstock through the SU! texturz plates - I used the smaller dots. Then, instead of putting a whole piece of cardstock in the Movers and Shapers Curly Label Die, I centered the curly label magnetic piece and then centered my cardstock within the punch-out area. In an effort to use the things I have and not to put ribbon on every card (this is so hard for me!), I used some brads I made last weekend when I was playing with the glitters.

This first card makes me smile and I hope it puts a smile on your face too! Thanks for dropping by and have a great day!
