Beautiful Friendship

I had to share this card using news dies from the Tropical collection at Cottage Cutz.  I LOVE this collection - hibiscus flowers are one of my favorites followed by plumeria.  Both are included!

This card was easy to create.  I wanted the flowers to be very organic and fluid so I decided to watercolor my cardstock that I would use to cut the flowers.

I took a piece of Mixed Media paper 6 x 11 and just started watercoloring with three analogous colors - a yellow orange, an orange and a bright pink.  This gave me the color palette I was looking for.

When gluing the flowers to the card, I started with the two main flowers and adhered just their centers.  In this way, I could tuck the leaves behind the flowers.  When everything was on the card, I added glue with my fine-tipped glue.
The small flower is popped up using foam dots.  Some of the leaves were overhanging the edges of the card and I trimmed those using scissors.
Finally, this card seemed to need a bit of sparkle.  I added a few sequins and used a shimmer pen on the small hibiscus flower in the front.
