The other day I posted a few inspiration photos from the recent Talbots catalog that I had put in my journal.  Yesterday I used one of them to design a card and what fun it was!  

I watercolored a large piece of watercolor paper with various shades of pink/coral and then die cut the layers of the flower.  I die cut the leaves just in white and did a little watercoloring on the tips.  Arranged everything and added a few copper Nuvo drops and done.  Another card to wait for a sentiment when needed.  I'm really pleased the way this turned out - adding brown was something I never would have done if it hadn't been in the clothing colors.  

I am entering this in Virginia's Show and Share for February and also The Flower Challenge to "add leaves."

Thanks for dropping by and always love to read your comments.
