Shower card

Hello blog fans!
Today I have a little card that I made to use as a gift card with a
bridal shower gift.
It was inspired by Kristina Werner
on this video where she made a Father's Day card.
I loved the concept so I adapted it for my own card.
I used my Peerless water colors , but I couldn't guess at what
colors I used, I just kept adding colors until I liked the look I had.
Believe it or not, I actually wrote that "love"
I usually hate my own handwriting,
but I played around and practiced until I got something I liked,
wrote it with pencil and then went over it with a journalling pen.
I layered the water color piece onto a piece of coordinating card stock
and then adhered it to a white card base.
Here is a picture with the envelope I made for the card.
It's an odd size and I knew there wouldn't be an envelope to fit.
I love the fun pop of green on the inside of the envelope.
I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out and I hope
Liz will like it too.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you've been inspired in some way.
Come again soon and you'll see the other card I made with this technique.
Until then,
Be Creative and Have Fun with it!
