Water Colored Card with PTI

Good morning PTI friends!  Melissa inspired us this week with some beautiful water colored flowers for PTI's Make-It Monday.  You can find the video HERE.
I always seem to do this...  I watch the video on Monday and then make my project on Tuesday morning and forget some of the details of the challenge. I've been wanting to water color this mason jar for a while but never got around to it until this challenge.  I realize now that I was supposed to add the color with a sponge.  Instead, I dropped the color on using a water brush.  I hope this still counts for the challenge.
  I cut both the Friendship Jar and the flowers from Vintage Linens from water color card stock and heat embossed them using white embossing powder.   I also heat embossed the sentiment in white and then went to water coloring the images.  

I'm really loving this Pretty Frame Cover Plate, so I'm sure you'll be seeing it pop up in lots of posts in the future.  
I'm also loving the new Parakeet Green color!!  It's such a pretty spring green.

I'll also be entering this card into the following challenges:
CAS Mix Up using Stamping, Heat Embossing & Die Cutting


Anyway, I'm so thankful to you for stopping by.  Blessings~ Birgit
