Holly's Flower Challenge

Hello!  It's Holly posting today, and this is the card I created for the second challenge on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.  This challenge is all about flowers, so I've gone a little flower-crazy on this card.  :-)

Before I list the steps in creating this card, the products from Classy Cards 'n Such that I used are:

Twinkling H2Os - Think Pink collection  (I used Hopeful Honeysuckle, Lucky Apple, and Luv-U-Pink)

Here are the steps I used to create this card:
1.  Stamp  Rabbit in Watering Can  with black ink onto white cardstock.  Trim cardstock to 3" x 3.75".  Color rabbit and watering can with Copic markers.
2.  Add a drop of water to each of the three  Twinkling H2O pots  (Hopeful Honeysuckle, Lucky Apple, and Luv-U-Pink).  Using a watercolor brush or aquapainter, swirl brush into Hopeful Honeysuckle paint and apply to the tulips. 
3.  Clean the brush, dip it into the Lucky Apple paint and apply to the leaves.
4.  Clean the brush, dip it into the Luv-U-Pink paint and apply to the tiny flowers.  Set image aside to dry, clean the brush.
5.  Cut blue cardstock to 8.5"x5.5" and fold in half to create card.
6.  Cut white cardstock to 4 1/8" x 5 3/8", run through a die cut machine with a faux embossing folder (special technique from Technique Junkies).
7.  Wrap  ribbon  around the front of the white cardstock, tape to the back, and cut off excess.
8.  Cut blue cardstock to 3 1/8" x 3 7/8".  Adhere the stamped & colored rabbit image to this blue cardstock.  Adhere to card.
9.  Cut 7 or 8 strips of tissue paper to fit the  Miniature Rose die, tape together on the ends, and die cut with the Miniature Rose die.
10.  Pull the tissue paper roses apart and stagger the petals.  Put a jeweled brad through the center.
11.  Using a watercolor brush, paint the tissue paper flowers with Luv-U-Pink paint and set aside to dry.  (You may need to add more water to the H2O pot.)
12.  When tissue paper flowers are dry, adhere to card.  

Thanks, Holly!!   This card is so versatile!   How about Easter, thinking of you, birthday and more!!
