Pearlescent Watercolor with Flower Stencil

Found a flower stencil at the dollar store and decided to use it with my Yasutomo Pearlescent Watercolors.  The card below is the result.  I decided to embellish it with self-adhesive gemstones.  With so many gemstones, I don’t feel it needs any greeting on the front, so I’ll put it inside.  That is just as well, since I didn’t make the card with anyone in particular in mind.  I was just feeling creative!  It will go in my stash to be used as a quick grab when I need it :0)
