Flowers for Spring... they still come up!!!

Hi there,
Yes flowers are still coming up and we have two flowering trees right across the street, I LOVE IT!!! Corona virus or not... God's world keeps on doing it's thing, no matter what virus is running around!!! So I believe that God is in control and will lead us to find a vaccine. He says in His Word:
           2Chron 7:14: "If MY people who are called by MY NAME, will
           humble themselves, and pray and seek MY FACE, and turn from
           their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive
           their sin and HEAL THEIR LAND".

So I am here to show you a flower card that I couldn't wait to work on. I've been working on my water coloring and wanted to try one of these curvy full of greenery and flowers stamp. This is The Altenew "Just Because" stamp and it gave me quite the workout!!! I confess that I am just learning my water coloring. I am taking classes and loving every moment. I don't know if you are like this, but I keep thinking it's not good enough!!! But I am trying and that's the good part, RIGHT???? It's the process and the enjoyment I get out of finishing a project!!! I LOVE water coloring and plan on continuing and growing!!!

So I stamped the flower stamp on watercolor paper (I use Bristol 100 lb or Arches 140 lb) and then started coloring. Figuring out where one flower ended and another one started was the hardest part. But I prevailed and then colored all the leaves. Trying to get the leaves in different colors was hard because some of them are so small. 

The purple glitzy half a circle was a leftover from a full circle I had bought a long time ago. I love using up old stuff, but sometimes I have just too much of it and it gets overlooked for the new stuff I buy.

I glued it all on to a mustard yellow card stock cut to a A2 card size. Added a purple frame to tie it all together.

I am entering this card into these challenges:  the theme is "spring"  The theme is "happy Easter,
      happy spring"  Theme is "Spring/Autumn"  Theme is "Spring" I believe my card fits          either the CAS style or Classy and Elegant.

So that's it for me.
Thank you for visiting and please leave me a comment. I would love to hear you have been here!!!
