Happy Watercolor - HSSSC#182

I am so excited!!!!  My entry into last weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge was chosen as one of the Artist Picks!  Such an honor!!!

Today I worked from two different challenges:  The colors were from the Colour Me card challenge and the layout was from Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.

I pulled out the Hello Lovely stamp set for the background.  There are so many great 'bits' to make your own mosaic background in this set!  I paired it with the Happy Watercolor set out of the Occasions catalog.  I used Coastal Cabana to do the ombre background for the flower.  My favorite part of putting this card together was playing with the die cut flower I made with the Big Shot and the new Spiral Flower originals die out of the Occasions catalog.  This was my first time to try it out and I'm loving it!  So easy and flexible!  I will be using these a lot more.

 A quick reminder to everyone that the Sale-a-Bration is only on until March 31, so take advantage of it today! 

I am always available to help if you have questions or want to host your own party and get Hostess $$ to spend!

Beautiful, so beautiful! I love that flower, the center of it looks so cool, and your subtle "watercolor" stamping looks great. Thanks for playing again at HSS, and I'm glad you were picked last week, I loved your guitar card!
