Twinkling Blossoms

Sometimes a card is a really hard time in coming! That is what happened with this card but I really like the way it finally turned out! Originally, I planned to pair the focal blossom with some Lily Kate Basic Grey paper, so I chose my color scheme to go with it. But then, I spent so much time and care painting it with my twinking H2O's, I didnt want it to get overpowered by the paper. So, I decided to make my own background. I washed a bit of white cardstock with green watercolor paint and then stamped the smaller flowers from the same stamp set over it. Then they were also painted with the same H2O's that I stamped the focal point with. Finally! Something I was happy with! And then the rest of the card just came together with the materials listed below. Hope you enjoy it!
