Papertrey February Blog Hop - Sweet Spring: it's your day

This month's challenge for the blog hop over at Papertrey Ink is all about spring colours and inspiration:
I also used the Make it Monday watercolour video that Dawn shared as my jumping off point.

It was hard to get a good photo showing the watercolouring and the heat embossing but it does show up in person, promise! I watercoloured using Distress Markers and a wide brush plus some Perfect Pearls mixed with water.   It adds some nice shine.
Here's a closeup showing the white heat embossing - simple but effective.

This card also fits in perfectly with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Wedding An niversary.
