Isabella's Flowers - ISC11 CC275

Hi ya'll! (Have to talk like that now that I'm on the Cowgirl's Posse!!) hehe

This card is for 2 challenges:

1. Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge 11, found here: http://isabellaschallenge.blogspot.com/2010/06/challenge-11-sketch-challenge-using.html; Isabella put this beautiful image as a freebie on the new digital stamping site found here: http://priscillastyles.ning.com/. If you haven't seen this site, you need to check it out...LOTS of freebies and LOTS of fun!!; and
2. Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge - CC275 - found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=494840.
My sister gave me a beautiful watercolor set about a year ago, and I've been scared to use it. Have been using watercolor pencils, but not paints in a tube. Well, this image just screamed "Watercolor me!!"...so I thought, what the heck, so this is my first. Of course, it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, although I know practice will make it better, so be gentle ~.~.
Inside is stamped "With Sincere Sympathy" which has a little flower beside it, also watercolored.
Thanks for looking, and hope you're having a great day!
