For a Summer Birthday

I recently ordered and received this oh-so-pretty Tossed Florals cover die and here's a card I made that features it.

supplies: white, black, and coral card stock, Wplus9 Tossed Floral die, watercolored with Altenew inks, Simon's Stitched Circle and Leanna Butterfly dies, sentiment from Gina K Designs Wreath Builder, Doodlebug sprinkle on butterfly

I wanted to color it with softened sherbet-y summer colors, so I smooshed various mini inks on an acrylic block, and used them to watercolor the flowers and leaves.  I didn't want to cover up much of the pretty result, so I chose to add a sentiment in a small circle.  The butterfly was sitting on my desk and it seemed like a nice addition to the mix.

Hope your week is off to a great start!
