Watercolor Mother's Day Flowers - MCS Challenge

Good morning! It is time for a new challenge over at My Craft Spot - and appropriately, we are celebrating Mom this week! I made a Mother's Day card:
I used a sentiment from Happy Easter, and some black jute twine.

I have been wanting to play with some flower silhouettes and some watercolor effects, so I decided to do that on this card. I used watercolor paper and used "Insightful Meadows" from Unity Stamps for the flowers. I inked them up with varying colors of MFT ink, then sprayed with Smooch Spritz before stamping. I let them dry really well before adding my sentiment.
I then added a slim strip of black cardstock along the side, then attached to my cardbase of Avery Elle kraft cardstock before wrapping with my black jute twine and tying in a bow. 
I am also linking this up with the Wonder of Watercolor Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will join us in creating a card to honor mom this week! Have a great day!!!

I am also going to link this up to one of the National Scrapbook Day Challenges over at Shop Pumpkin Spice, Mother's Project. The prize for each challenge is $20, and their aren't that many participants yet, so your chances are pretty good! Hope you will come play along!!!
