TE Sketch Challenge #154

Weather: Despite today being the first day of spring and you'd expect the sun shining and flowers blooming, the day started out with a massive thunderstorm. Like huge. Like you want to hide under the covers until it's over. Fortunately, it stopped before I had to get to work.

Card: Mom's birthday is tomorrow, so tonight's assignment was to make a card for her. I decided to visit the Taylored Expressions website and try out TE Sketch Challenge #154. I knew that I wanted to have flowers be the focus of the card because of my mom's green thumb. I used my Aqua Painter to color in the image and give it a soft feel. I used the Wild Honey ink to paint the stamen, but then I put Liquid Pearl on top of it to give it some visual interest.
