Love You Floral Card

Hi There! First day of the month! I have a card to share with you all. This is a simple card using some floral stamps and most of them are from the Simon Says Stamp - Hello Friends stamp set. It's my first attempt in creating a wreath design. It took some time for me to start building the wreath using small stamps. I wanted to try something which is out of my comfort zone. So, here is my card for today. 

I stamped the images and water colored them using distress inks : Cracked Pistachio, Wilted Violet, Broken China and Shaded Lilac. I had no idea how it will turn out as I never tried water coloring on my previous cards. It's a great experience playing with distress inks and it was challenging too! More to learn :)

The sentiment was gold embossed and adhered to the center of the wreath. Overall, water coloring is therapeutic! I enjoyed making this card and love the way it turned out. Hope you like my card. I would love to hear your feedback.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges :
