I cut a Matt of watercolour cardstock to fit my card blank. I stamped my main floral image slightly off centre and watercoloured it using the SU! Ink pads. I used some ink on my paintbrush to make splashes of colour across the entire panel. i cut a strip of Kraft card, die cut a scallop edge to the bottom and stamped my sentiment at one side. I diecut the 50 from teal and Kraft cardstock, then layered these together to provide a shadow. The final touch was a scattering of coloured sequins.

Challenges I would like to enter:
