Watercolor Trio Birthday


All the veggies have been processed (the next batch won't have to be done until Wednesday) and the company is gone (until tomorrow) so I've been trying to leave some comments on different blogs and just generally relaxing.
This is a card that I completed last week I think for SCS Card Sketches. I used the Watercolor Trio set from SU. I can tell you this - it sure looks a lot better than if I had tried to actually water color it!!! My water coloring leaves a lot to be desired. I used Not Quite Navy, Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, White and SU patterned paper. The piece of Not Quite Navy was embossed with the Perfect Petals folder but you really can't see it in the photo that good. It made a very light impression. The butterfly is from the Beautiful Wings die. After taking the photo I added a bit of sheer ribbon around bottom of the image and it gave it a nice "touch".

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.


Thanks for stopping by.............
