Happy Friday

Good morning friends,
It is a lovely sunny day with blue skies, but a freezing wind that feels like it has come straight from the South Pole.   BRRRR!!!!.

The message on my card today says it all...that is my wish  for you.
I saw the watercolour technique on a card by Jennifer McGuire and really loved it, so decided to use her idea for my card.

 
 






For my sentiment I used words from various stamps, embossed with white EP, and then did the watercolouring technique.

 The butterfly is from Joy crafts, cut twice. Coloured the bottom one and put some glitter on the top.

The pearls were coloured with  copics. Didn't have green pearls. I don't really colour with them, but they are great for colouring pearls etc.







On the inside I decided to make a pop out flower. I used a Marianne Design Collectable die and cut 6 of the medium flowers. Stamped a design on them, folded and glued together. The flourishes are from Joy crafts
