Simon Says Spring Flowers

Simon Says has a Spring Flower Challenge going on and I really wanted to try Sanketi's water color technique.  Rather perfect combination I thought~

 First attempt, and I am okay with this.  I see a couple of areas I might have made "more water colored", but yeah, overall I like it!  I found the flower image in my Hero Arts drawer [never used!], Floral Blossoms and a sentiment from HA also, Treasure the Moments [discontinued].

I also got the Retro Sketch 114 in, I loved it!  I combined it with Less Is More 171; one layer Thank You card.

I used Hero Arts Brush Strokes, along with a sentiment from Simon Says Flower Friend.  I inked my image and spritz with water, then stamped.

Lastly, I received Joy's post from Simple By Design, the other day, and I was so impressed with her card I had to CASE it.  This will qualify for Simon Says Monthly -- what we did this month with SS products.

I also water colored this flower -- [a water color kind of day I guess].  The cool part about this card is I have had this Sizzix Flower Daisy die [Ebay maybe?] for 4 years and I have never used it!  So, I have to thank Joy for motivating me to get with it!  I used Simon Says You [and die].  I absolutely loved the layout of this card~

A fabulous way to spend Mother's Day since my son isn't here..........


Thanks for stopping by~

Hi sweetie, I remembered how much I enjoyed this red card. There's a great CASE card here. Lots of little details to inspire. Would you consider being AAA Cards Guest Designer for the week of June 23rd?
