Make It Monday #165

My card for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday #165.  Using one of my favorite stamp sets (Funky Florals) I used Betsy Veldman's watercolor technique stamping the large flower in Simply Chartreuse and Ocean Tides. When everything had dried, I stamped the sentiment in black and the flower centers in Classic Kraft.
