Poppystamps Challenge #18 - Spring Fling

Here is Poppystamps Challenge #18 - Spring Fling, below is the challenge photo:

And here is the card I made to attend for this challenge:


I used the Poppy Stamps' Clara Corner die to cut the corner on a piece of watercolor paper. Then I applied the watercolor on the flowers of the corner. I water colored the center with light colors and gold embossed the wreath in the center. I die cut welcome and water color the word, then attach it on top of the wreath. Finish the card by backing up the watercolor paper with foam tapes on a white card base. So the flower corner has a dimensional look.

Supplies:
Cardstock: watercolor paper, MTF
Stamps: Paper Smooches
Dies: Poppy Stamps, Paper Smooches
Ink Pads: Versamark
Others: watercolors, gold embossing powder, foam tapes
