Wavy Blooms and Watercolor

These three cards actually began as a 12 x 12 page.  I had randomly stamped the Wavy Blooms stamps and watercolor painted them on a full piece of watercolor paper to use for a piece of framed wall decor.  I ended up changing my mind for it's purpose and didn't want to waste all those pretty flowers.  

From the stamped and painted watercolor paper, I cut a 4" x 5.25" card front for the thank you card.  I stamped the little honeycomb stamp from Reel Life in Whisper ink to add a little background interest and then added some Silver Sequins for bling. 

Hmmm...what to do with the rest?  I decided to cut out the remaining flowers from the stamped and watercolor painted paper and add them to the two fancy card bases I had cut with 
the Artistry Cartridge.  
The circles were simply painted with a round brush.  Let them dry and outlined them with my Journaling Pen.  So quick and easy!
