Blooming planter

This card uses one of the many downloads that I've recently bought from Lily-Boo's Boutique called Gardening Ovals. I think I've purchased 10 sheets already, but they're all worth it! The image was colored with Prismacolor watercolor pencils, which I recently got on eBay for a ridiculously cheap price. I got 36 pencils for $25, which I thought was a good deal. I need to learn a lot about using watercolor pencils though. Anyone know a good site/video? Anyway, enjoy my simple card :)

This card is for a few challenges:
  1. Friday Sketchers - for Challenge #57
  2. Paper Blooms - for Be Inspired - I am constantly inspired by anything related to nature!
  3. Charisma Cards - for Challenge #25 Any theme, any style
  4. Digital Tuesday Challenge - for Challenge #12 Use Your Scraps of Paper - No new papers were harmed in the making of this card :) The image is a digital download from Lily-boo's Boutique.
