PTI MIM #282: Stenciled Watercolor Backgrounds and SSS Monday Challenge

Betsy is up this week for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday showing us how to use stencils for watercolored backgrounds. Her card is just gorgeous, and I love the colors she used. But, I had to be a bit different as I set out to make a card for my grandniece's 12th birthday. (Note to self: I need more stencils with designs that flow like Woodblock Prints.) This is what I created. 

I will also be entering this in Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: We've Got Your Number. 

Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments.

Cardstock: Stamper's Select White, Mint Julep, Hibiscus Burst, Hawaiian Shores and SU Summer Sun
Ink: Hibiscus Burst, Hawaiian Shores, Mint Julep and Summer Sunrise
