YOU Make February FABULOUS! Watercolor Plants

Today in the YOU Make February FABULOUS! promotion, Holly Mays is the featured guest designer of Watercolor Plants (T3083).  Check out her fabulous cards at Mischelle's  Savvy Projects blog.  My card for the blog hop is here.

I've used Reese cardstock and Amberley Grace SWIC printed cardstock and Ivory Ultrasmooth cardstock.  The stamp sets are Watercolor Plants (T3083), Festive Bouquets (T3376) for the vase and Thinking of You (TC3128) for the saying. 
The background card is scored with the Scor-Bug using the Scor-Buddy.  On the Ivory Ultrasmooth cardstock I stamped the flower that was colored with Aqua Crayons and spritzed with water.  The vase is stamped on a tag from Amberley Grace SWIC and paper-pieced on the stamped image.  I used Copic markers W3 and W5 for the shadow under the vase.  A thin bow was used to embelish the card.

Pin It!
