Freshly Made Sketches.......Happy Birthday

Happy Sunday Peeps!!!

Popping in here quickly to share a card I made using the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.

I decided to do another water colored BG for my card.

I started with a piece of water color paper. I taped it down to my water color board and begin to color it up
I used some Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie and lots of water.

I dried this piece with my heat tool and then dropped a bunch of water on the dried piece to get the splatters. I let it set for a few then used a paper towel to pick of the drops. I love this fun effect and it is so easy to achieve. 

I used the two colors to represent the two shades in the sketch.
I used my Botanical Builders dies to create my floral piece.
I used some scraps from my scrap pile for this. I used Coral, Mossy Meadow, Pumpkin Pie and white card stock
The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder set.
I added a few rhinestones around to finish it up.

Thanks for stopping by today!
