Where Creativity Meets C9

When Lynn Put's card for the Challenge hit my email box: mind blown!!!
 
Followed very closely by a delivery to my door step ... I knew it was time to be done with that Christmas card order,
and to just have FUN!!!
 
Fun was had, too, trying to do a little of Lynn's water coloring style into my project!  Thanks, Lynn, for your inspiration!
 
 
I made this one for a certain friend who brings Joy to my life every.  single.  day.
Of course it will first be posted to the Watercolor Challenge 2 at Where Creativity Meets C9 ... have a great weekend, everyone!

You're blowing a few minds your own self, Michele! This is perfect for the challenges - and it would work for the TIME OUT Challenge CASEing Ardyth, too, I think. It's fabulous!! Hugs, Darnell

What a joyful card, Michele! I adore those flowers and how you watercolored them. Those colors are beautiful. I also really like the joy cutout and how you added the knotted ribbon just so. You nailed the watercolor and the creativity factor, big time! I hope you have a fabulous weekend! Hugs! :)

Methinks this may quickly replace your other favorite flowers, Michele. Your loose watercoloring is fabulous. Bring this set with you, please.

Talk about MIND BLOWN!! This may just be your best yet Michele. Your flowers are colored to perfection, the knotted ribbon is brilliant behind the cut out and the black accents make everything pop. LOVE this one to bits and bits!!
