Hello and welcome...this post is for the sketch challange over at Try Stampin on Tuesday #417. I just think the sketch is so fun and the DT team did a great job with their interpretations. Below is the sketch:

Here is my card:

I used the smaller image from the Morning Mist Magnolia from SU! One of my new favorite sets.
I did watercolor them and the background for some interest. Colors used for watercoloring are: Flirty Flamingo, Balmy Blue, Old Olive and Soft Suede. I walked by a pile of metallic papers in my craft-room and decided I would use one of them to frame the watercolor panels. I chose the matte gold. I carefully spaced the panels on the base, added the magnolia flowers which I bumped up with dimensionals and randomly placed the water droplets on the panels. I like the sentiment from the same can use it for a birthday or for a friend just to let them know you are thinking of them.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek. I am hoping to post a few 
more things today while I have the time...

Happy Crafting...
