I actually couldn't wait to start designing this card because I had an idea right away, which rarely happens.
My fun began water coloring the flowers to attain the challenge pallet colors and then painting the remaining leaves and sprigs. Sidenote: This card was intended to be vertical and I even took a phone photo of the placement of the diecut pieces in that orientation. However, when I was trying to imagine where a sentiment would go, I happened to turn the card to a horizontal direction. Voila! Tip: Adding the scallop border grounded the card. Cutting out parts of a sentiment and tucking them into the leaves worked within this busy layout.
