Floating Watercolor Pansies-Stamping 411 SSC 258

Here's my contribution to this week's Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge #258.

  Watercolor Pansies 018

Floating Watercolor Pansies inspired by the Johnny Jump Ups that are growing in a container on my front porch.  (Click here for full instructions) It had been a particularly rough morning as I had a slight melt down (my poor husband!) when I couldn't lay my hands on a certain insurance form we needed to finish filing the insurance claim for our garage fire.  Long story short, later as I was watering the containers, I spotted this pretty face and had to take a picture to share with you.  It brought a much needed smile!

I really like this sketch.  Sketch instructions said to make the card base 4 1/2" square.  I made mine 4 1/4" square so it would easily fit in a regular invitation sized envelope.
