Party Time Tuesdays Watercolor Flowers

Happy Tuesday! It's the first Tuesday of March so that means that our new challenge starts at Party Time Tuesdays. We had a lot of fabulous entries last month and I'm looking forward to seeing what this month brings. As always, the theme is "Anything Goes", so whip up something great and join us in the fun!

I thought this would be the perfect time to share this card I made using the Flower Stamps by Oriental Trading. It appears like these stamps are discontinued, but they do have a number of other stamps on the site and the prices are great!

I used Strathmore Watercolor Paper and stamped the flowers in Distress Ink, then spitzed them with the tiniest amount of water just to get a bit of a watercolor effect.  I thought it was such a pretty CAS card and I love the look of the flowers :) I finished it off with a sentiment and pretty purple floss.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Please take a minute and leave a comment letting me know what you think :)
