This Tablecloth inspired my card along with three DTGD challenges. The background was done by applying watercolor to an acrylic block and the flowers were watercolored with distress inks. Thanks so much for looking!

What a great idea to use your block to do the back ground! I struggle with watercolor but love the look of it...I may try this, I have a Hero Arts flower stamp that I have unsuccessfully tried to use like this! Thank you for the inspiration...yours is beautiful and as Kitty said , MUCH prettier than the table cloth! Your matting is the perfect accent coupled with your great sentiment. LOVE this! Pinned and faved...

Oh what a lovely watercolored image, beautiful card!!! I love how you've highlighted the flowers with the white space, then blue elsewhere--it's very effective. I wish I could see this card in person, for it's already wonderful just from the photo... :) Can't wait to try your background idea, it sounds GREAT!
