Flowers make me happy ....

Card number three tonight was very calming.  
  I stamped a daisy flower onto watercolor paper and grabbed my paints again.  I started with my opaque colors first for a base then I went to my opal set to give the petals some shine.  I needed to go over the outline a wee bit in some areas after.  I cut the paper to my base size and realized that my sentiment was way too big so I changed it like 5 times before I found the one that would fit and was the right color.   I went with a Dollar find rubber stamp from Michael's.  Yes Girl – I dig in those bins every now and then and find goodies.  I added some lime green ribbon also found at Michael's on sale.  ATGed it all together on a white card base and made me smile.  I think this one will get mailed this week.  

I would like to add this card to the following challenge:
