Spring Blooms

Hey there! I hope you are having a great week! I sure am...I've gotten in the studio two times this work week & it is just Wednesday! My card is for a few challenges. The first challenge is for the Paper Players challenge to create a CAS card that includes water-coloring. I pulled out the retired "On the Grow" set (from last year's Summer Mini Catalog) as it is my favorite set to watercolor.

The second challenge is a sketch challenge from Technostamper; the sketch is shown below.
 
My card base is Pretty in Pink with Wisteria Wonder accents; the DSP is Berry Blossoms. I water-colored using ink and a blender pen. The decorative label punch was used for the sentiment ends to coordinate with the Wisteria Wonder layer below.

Join in the fun with the Technostamper challenge; it is a blog hop!
Hugs, Marilyn

Very pretty card! Definitely loving the clean and simple look. Your watercoloring is beautiful and soft and I adore the pearl accent centers of the flowers. So glad you joined in the fun at The Paper Players!
