Pink Calla Lilies

Hi everyone.  Having fun playing with the CAS Watercolour April Challenge - Green & Pink.  Love this colour combination.

For the card above, I used a beautiful stamp gifted to me by my friend Deepti (designer of the stamp - Dee's Artsy Impressions).  I heat embossed the image in Liquid Platinum and then watercoloured using my Zigs.  I stamped the sentiment in soft green to match.

I thought this would be perfect as a square card, so I cut down the image panel. Happy with how it turned out.

If you get a chance, come check out the gallery.  So many gorgeous Green & Pink cards.  I know you'll be inspired. :)
