Retrosketches #102 & Creative Card Crew #55 - KISS

Hi friends! A special hello to my newest follower Aneta. So glad you have you along! 

I have a very quick post today to share a card I made for Retrosketches #102 using a couple new products I recent got.  I'm so in the mood for spring...sigh!  Take a look please:

Very simple really - I guess it's almost CAS but without the white space.  I was trying for an ombre effect with the sentiment and flowers (going from dark to light).  I lined up my saying using my trusty Stamp-a-Mjig tool.  I slightly blurred the edges of the small flowers with my watercolor pen after stamping and punching them out to go along with the watercolor paper. To my surprise when the flowers dried all the way the edges (petals) curled up slightly from that water. Really love how they turned out.  

I am also entering this cards at Creative Card Crew #55 - KISS (Keep it Simple and Sweet). 

As I said a quick post for now.  Fortunately I get the day off for the holiday so will hopefully be back later with another card or two to share (after I get  my DT cards for this week done).  
So "TaTa" for now.  Hugs and happy crafting dear friends! D
