Beautiful Blossoms June 2023

June and it's time for The Beautiful Blossom Challenge! Just look at these colors - gorgeous!
Of course I was totally inspired by the lilacs and the touch of green stems.
 First, I colored the digital image from Julie Spiro: Hydrangea GrayScale - printed on Taylored Expression's Watercolored Card Stock. Next, I watercolored with Daniel Smith's 238 Dot Set.  I wasn't entirely happy with it, so I die cut it with The Stamp Market's Ready To Bloom Card Cover Die. Then I loved it!
The background card stock is also from Taylored Expression's 118 lb. Watercolor Card Stock. I watercolored the background is a messy manner and dropped in some Perfect Pearls Pigment Powder in Gold.
A few yellow enamel dots and not it is perfect for a floral lover friend's birthday!
Here is an additional card I made with lilac color as my inspiration:
