Best Day Ever Flowers Watercolor Card

Here is a floral card which can be used for almost any celebration occasion.  For me it most likely will be a birthday card because I don't seem to have enough of them.


Sentiment:  May you have the best day ever.

For this card, I layered stamps, masked some areas, painted the flowers in with watercolor and used die-cuts.  It was easy using the versatile stamps and dies from My Creative Time.  When I noticed that Miss Emma had a challenge this week, I couldn't wait to delve into my collection of MCT goodness.  

The twist was to use an embellishment of some sort that you haven't used in a long time.  Instead of patterned paper and stickers, I made my own accents with her background stamps and the flower dies, things I haven't used in quite a while.  To make them pop, I masked the background and overlapped the flowers onto a smaller frame.  The leaves and flowers float over the edges.
