Wildflower in Blue

Hi!  Today I've got a watercolored thinking of you card that I'm sharing using the Concord & 9th stamp set, Wildflower.  
My card is pretty straight forward, I started out with a 3 1/2" x 3 1/2' square piece of watercolor paper that I stamped my images on, then watercolored using my Zig Clean Color brushes.  After watercoloring, I sprinkled on some water droplets, let it set for a few minutes and then blotted them up with a paper towel.  Then I used a fine point black pen and drew lines around the outside edge of my watercolored piece, added some Wink of Stella glitter pen to the flowers (see above photo) and some dots of white gel pen to the centers of each flower.  I also added some silver and royal blue sequins scattered throughout the image.  I matted my watercolor piece to black cardstock and adhered it with foam tape to a piece of brilliant blue cardstock trimmed to show my white card base on each side.  I ran two horizontal score lines under under my watercolored piece and added my sentiment from the MFT Label Maker Sentiments set.
Have a great day!
